Glycemic index: Glycemic index is an estimate of how much a food will raise your blood sugar after you eat it. Each unit = 1 gram of glucose -- it measures carbohydrate content. If it's greater than 20, it's considered high. For cheetos, the number is 6, but there's not much nutritional value in them either.

Could consuming low glycemic index sugar lead to diabetes?

Could consuming low glycemic index sugar lead to diabetes?

Can be tricky: Glycemic index refers to the impact that food has on the blood sugar level. Some foods are absorbed very rapidly and raise the blood sugar rapidly (sugar, simple carbohydrates) while others have very low impact on blood sugar and thus a low glycemic index (meats, fat). There are some "sugars" promoted as low glycemic index, but this almost is contradictory. Moderation is the key with diabetes risk. ...Read more

Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch  and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?

Does not matter: Since 90% of the cholesterol is produced by the body regardless of your diet, the above would not noticeably affect your cholesterol level. Do note that too much carb may not be good for your health. I don't believe extreme diet does anyone any good. Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more

Post cardio snack?  Protein & high on the glycemic index for my advanced strength traing. But what's good post cardio such as 5k 7mph. Fat loss goal

Try drinking water: And not having a snack. If you want to enhance fat burning during cardio, have a cup of tea or coffee about 30 minutes prior to exercise (without sugar or sweeteners). This will help mobilize fat stores and improve endurance during your work out. Iced tea or coffee is good. And if you must have a snack try raw carrots, celery, other vegetables with hummus. Unsalted roasted almonds are good too. ...Read more
