The GI Method: Part One

The GI-method. It might sound like something out of G.I. Joe or G.I. Jane but it really is just another diet.








This method is very popular in the US, Europe and well, just about anywhere in the world. The method builds on the idea of glycemic index, which is a measurement for how fast the carbohydrates in a specific food is broken down by the human body. The higher the GI, the faster the food is broken down and taken up by the body and the lower the GI, well, you know the drill. You can use the method to lose weight or maintain your current weight.

If you want to get going fast, I have three tips for you right here:

1. Eat foods with a low glycemic index
To your help you have GI-tables that shows the amount of GI a specific food has.

2. Eat fat and protein
Don’t avoid fat and protein. They are good for you and in a reasonable amount they contribute to a healthy lifestyle.

3. Do some excercise
The title says it all. Excercise for a couple of minutes every hour by just doing some squats or walking on the spot. It makes a big difference.
