The use of foods with a low GI is essential if you suffer from hypoglycaemia. The problem is that I cannot judge what component of the carb foods is giving you this reaction. On the one hand it could be the sudden increase in dietary fibre that is causing the bloating, or it could be any number of other potential allergens such as the soya flour that is often added to bread. If it is the dietary fibre then you can try the following: go back to eating only one of the carbs (e.g. the fruit once a day) - monitor how you feel, if ok then add another carb like the brown rice, see how you feel, etc. This should enable you to identify which low GI carbs give you a reaction and which do not. You would then have to avoid these specific carbs in future. Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The right approach' and read the articles on the Glycaemic Index for additional information.
