High Fat Conversion Foods

These are some common foods with their glycemic index numbers, that are especially high on this index, and thus stimulate fat storage:

Common sugar (sucrose)—92 Macaroni and cheese—92 Potatoes (mashed—100; French fries—107; baked—121; potato chips—high) Corn—78; pop corn—79; corn chips—105; corn flakes—119 Pizza—86 White rice—83; brown rice—79 White and wheat bread—101 Cold cereals (most). E.g. Life—94; Grapenuts—96; Cheerios—106; Total—109 Cooked cereals (e.g. Cream of Wheat—100, oatmeal—87 (steel cut is less) Bananas—77 Most juices and all drink mixes and soft drinks (97) Desserts (ice cream—87); donuts—108 Fat-free bottled “lite” dressings (due to added corn syrup and maltodextrins). High fructose corn syrup—89 Maltodextrins—150 (added to many foods, but deceptively not counted as sugar!)

Did you notice that some of these foods are worse than pure sugar? It is wise to eat these foods sparingly. And when you do eat these foods, balancerepparttar glycemic index forrepparttar 131203 whole meal by eating low index foods with them.

Fat Burning Foods

Here are some ofrepparttar 131204 foods that are rated as having a low glycemic index:

Fructose—32 Trutina Dulcem (a fruit sugar fifteen times sweeter than regular sugar) “Super sugars” (glyconutrients) Stevia—though not “approved” byrepparttar 131205 FDA as a sweetener, it is often used as such High protein foods (e.g. fish, meat and eggs) Most vegetables including sweet potatoes and yams Beans—40 Salads—low Avocado—low Stone ground bread and sprouted grain—low Barley—36 Rye—48 Most pastas—varies; spaghetti—59 (but very low nutritional value) Berries—low Cherries—32 Apples—54 Oranges—63 Peaches—60 Pears—53 Dairy products; whole milk—39 (there are other concerns mentioned previously) Soy milk—43 Seeds and nuts—as low as 21 (peanuts) Butter (in moderation—far superior to margarine) Olive oil Soy beans—25 Celery—very very low

There is one other huge advantage to using low glycemic foods besides weight control: longevity! According a study by T. Par entitled "Insulin Exposure and Aging Theory" inrepparttar 131206 Journal of Gerontology - 1997; 43:182-200, high insulin levels, which result from consuming high glycemic foods, promotes accelerated aging. Both calorie restriction and a low glycemic index diet appear to be important for longevity, BUT a diet of low glycemic foods is even more effective than calorie restriction for longevity.
