I'm low carb too due to hypoglycemia so the Glycemic Index/Glycemic Load is important to me but I didn't give up carrots either. LOL. They are a healthy vegetable. And rarely I eat a potato or brown rice but I don't eat them every day now like I use to.

I don't believe in forbidden foods. All things in moderation. What's a birthday without birthday cake? But when I do have cake I try to make the cake healthier and I don't eat it every day.

Makes sense to me...!

Thx for the explanation! Even tho I strive to keep my food low carb, carrots have always been part of my veggie intake.

Some experts feel that the glycemic load is just as important or more important than the glycemic index. It's the reason that the South Beach diet allows carrots now after originally banning them. Lentils have a low glycemic index while carrots have a high one but the exact opposite is true in relationship to glycemic load.

Glycemic Index Versus Glycemic Load
The glycemic index tells you how quickly a carbohydrate-containing food turns into sugar, but it doesn’t tell you how much carbohydrate is in a serving of a food. To assess the full impact of a food on blood sugar levels you should have an idea of both. This is where glycemic load comes in.

Glycemic load is a relatively new term that considers both the glycemic index and the amount of carbohydrate in a food. The carbohydrate in carrots, for example, has a high GI. But carrots are pretty low in carbohydrate compared to other foods like potatoes, bread, and sweets, so carrots glycemic load is relatively low. The bottom line is that if a food has a high GI but very little carbohydrate, it will not have much impact on blood sugar and insulin levels. On the other hand, if a food has both a high GI and a high carbohydrate content, it should be limited. The following table illustrates this principle.

Food Glycemic Index Carbohydrates (g) Glycemic Load
1 medium carrot 71 8 6
1 cup watermelon 72 11 8
1 cup mashed potatoes 83 31 26
1 cup brown rice 55 44 24
1 cup pasta 41 39 16
1 cup lentils 29 39 11
12-ounce soda 68 37 25

thanks for sharing............great info....


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

I found this to be a fairly informative article about the ins & outs of various processed and natural sweeteners.
