Be a GI Jane?

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.
