I've been doing some reading on the Glycemic Index. I think this is the type of diet that I need to be following. I still need to do more research to fully understand it.
The basic idea is that not all carbohydrates are created equally. Carbs can effect our insulin levels differently. There are "low GI carbs - medium GI carbs - and high GI carbs. It's important to eat the high GI carbs in moderation.
I'm going to try and make small changes so that I can begin a healthier lifestyle. I've already done more than I've ever done before, in starting this blog and joining a few websites to help track calories.
This is my turn.
