Glycemic index: Is measure of how fast a food will raise the blood sugar when eaten. Fruits like bananas, grapes etc have high glycemic index and raise bs quickly compared to foods with lower glycemic index like sweet potatos high fiber foods, etc. You should be able to find a book or list on the internet of low glycemic foods.

What would the low glycemic index diet and what foods are in it be?

Low sugar: Low glycemic index means foods that are low in simple sugars. Meats chicken, fish and nuts have no sugar at all- they are protein and fat. They have the lowest glycemic index. Then include most vegetables, and to a less degree fruits. Fruits are low in processed sugar. High in glycemic index are processed foods such as white flour, and grains striped of their fiber. Candy- pure sugar is high.

Yes.: Blenderizing food breaks down cell walls and causes the straches or sugars to be quickly absorbed, increasing glycemic index. Example from low to high: apple with peel; apple sauce; apple juice.
