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.
