What Foods Should I Avoid?
Picture: Tanya after 6 pies and a soft drink. Look at the pain caused by too many high-glycemic carbohydrates. NOTE: Pies and soft drink are BAD!
Excessive consumption of high-glycemic carbohydrates is a major cause of nutritionally caused health problems. High glycemic carbohydrates are those that raise blood sugar rapidly. They include rice, bread, candy, potato, sweets, sodas, and most processed carbohydrates. Processing can include bleaching, baking, grinding, and refining. Processing of carbohydrates greatly increases their glycemic index, a measure of their ability to elevate blood sugar.
