Knowing the difference between low GI and high GI foods can make all the difference to your lifestyle and health needs. For an instant energy boost, to build muscles or to accelerate your metabolism, tuck into carbohydrates with a high glycaemic index such as bread, sugar, honey and grain-based foods. But if you’re trying to burn fat or if you have diabetes, best stick to low GI foods such as beans, lentils, peas and soya beans or kick-start your day with a bowl of oats and low-fat milk. Snacking on fresh fruit, such as apples, pears, citrus, berries and kiwis and low-fat yoghurt throughout the day will also do wonders for you. 0 More: Daily Dose: Are you drinking your sugar intake?Health-in-Motion advertisement Other news Diet and nutrition The 5 biggest misconceptions about eating fat Medical Here's why SA is on the forefront of using new TB meds News Only 20% of people will know all the answers to this health quiz Parenting Myth debunked: epidurals do not prolong labour Medical Type 1 diabetes linked to coeliac disease Medical 30 000 lives could be saved with this vaccine From our sponsors R2000 Skin Renewal online store voucher up for grabs!
