High glycemic index(gi) foods that have high effect on blood sugar level -will eating such foods make you feel hungry sooner compared to low gi foods?

YES: Since high blood sugar leads to a RUSH of INSULIN and INSULIN makes you hungry it makes sense to avoid foods which have a high SUGAR (GLYCEMIC) effect Hope this helps! Dr Z
