Best food choices for low glycemic index diets

Here’s your Glycemic Index listing of Low Glycemic Index Foods.

They're considered to be the best food choices to help boost your efforts to lose belly fat fast.

Low Glycemic Index Foods

The foods listed below are low glycemic index foods.

Their G.I. rate (the number beside each food item) ranges anywhere from 0 to 55.

There will always be some variance in G.I. counts depending upon different factors (sources used, etc.), so in some cases the G.I. counts were estimated.

However it’s safe to say these foods fall well within their respective GI limits and can be considered to be low glycemic index foods.

What's one of the best known ways to lose belly fat fast?

  • Eliminate white foods out of your diet - white pasta, white rice, white flour, white sugar, white potatoes. Substitute them with low glycemic index foods instead.

  • Replace those foods with whole grain pasta, brown rice, whole grain flour, yams, and xylitol or stevia as sweeteners.

  • Eat protein at every meal.

  • Choose foods that fall mainly into the low glycemic index foods list daily; eat sparingly from the medium glycemic index foods list; and avoid high glycemic index foods altogether.
