What is the Problem with High-Glycemic Carbohydrates?
The problem with high-glycemic carbohydrates is that they give an excessive insulin response. Insulin is an essential hormone for life, yet acute, chronic elevation of insulin leads to hyperinsulinism, which has been positively linked to obesity, elevated cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, mood dysfunction and many other diseases and disabilities.
What does this mean to us: Eat a low-glycemic diet to improve your health. Or put even more simply: "Eat some salad you fat bastards!"
