So i’ve been learning more and more about nutrition and it seams that GI and GL make the most sense as far as keeping blood sugar in check. Yea it’s great for diabetics but truly great for everyone. By keeping my blood sugar from spiking and also making sure I get enough GL to keep it from dropping to low I can keep my mood and energy levels, metabolism, and more all in check. It’s really quite amazing. The hard part is. Doing that while also getting a good balance of Protein:Carbs:Fat and also keeping it within my daily caloric needs.
I realize i could give all my information to a nutritionist and pay them to figure it all out and set up a meal plan….or i can take the time to learn and figure it all out myself. Being that money is tight i’ll be doing it myself. Once i sit down and figure it all out then i’ll have lots of meal options and have the know how to make good choices when i’m away from home and make adjustments based on daily activity level and if i miss an exercise that day. It’s great.
My hubby is a health nut as well and he found the great article that pretty much sums it all up. Yes it is geared to guys getting more muscle…but the facts are still true just tweak it to your goals and your set. Either way more muscle means faster metabolism and means you muscles just burn more calories just maintaining where there at. Pretty nice. My favorite part of this article if the list of carbohydrate filled foods and there GL’s. Protein, veggies, or foods that don’t have sugars or carbs are not on the list because they don’t effect your Glicemic Level. Either way its a great list of healthy fiber filled carbs.
Here’s to my last week. Yeah for gum and yogurt. I know i’ve slaked off and used being sick as an excuse up to this point. That’s no reason to not give it my all and finish strong…pun intended. Love you guys and all your support!
