Our expert says:
If you stick to using berries, or deciduous fruit (apples, pears, plums, peaches) or citrus fruit, then you will already be using low-GI fruits. The yoghurt will lower the GI even further and keep in mind that some of the sugar in fruit is fructose which has a low-GI. You can add raw oat bran (low-GI), but rather not raw oats (medium-GI). I sense from your questions that you may not yet have consulted a clinical dietitian to help you with a low-fat, low-GI diet. For your own sake do consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), to help you adjust to the low-GI diet because the correct diet and daily exercise are the two most important factors in the treatment of insulin resistance.
