What to Expect in Your MyFoodMyHealth Meal Planner & Cardiometabolic Diet/Low Glycemic Index Diet
Keeping blood sugar balanced is an important part of healthy eating. Carbohydrates and dietary sugars influence blood sugar and insulin levels. Terms like glycemic index and glycemic load refer to how foods affect blood sugar levels. Those two measures can be useful, but most of us eat foods in combination with other foods, soMyFoodMyHealth has developed recipes and meal plans with the glycemic load of the entire recipe in mind.The trick to optimizing this kind of eating strategy: It’s all about balancing the glycemic loads of the foods.
Carbohydrates and sugars in food raise blood sugar but the effect of eating those foods can be blunted by combining carbs with healthy fats, protein and fiber. That is why each recipe in the MyFoodMyHealth Low Glycemic Diet:
- combines carbohydrates, protein, fiber and fats to gently and optimally raise (but not spike) blood sugar
- contains varying amounts of carbohydrates
Notes for Using the MyFoodMyHealth Low Glycemic Diet Meal Planner
When using the MyFoodMyHealth low glycemic meal planner it is important to consider the entire meal. If the main dish is one with moderately high carbohydrates, combine that dish with lower carbohydrate sides to maintain the overall balance of the meal. And be sure to fill half your plate with non-starchy veggies!
- Some recipes include additional information with regard to low glycemic load eating.
- Some recipes include tips and tricks to optimize the glycemic load of certain recipes. Be sure to follow the tips that correspond with your particular eating plan.
- IMPORTANT: There is a range of low and moderate glycemic load recipes within this category in an effort to maximize your food plan, which we call the Glycemic Load Spectrum. In the MyFoodMyHealth meal plannerif a particular recipe is marked with an “M” for moderately low glycemic load, be sure to include sides marked with an “L” for low glycemic load.
- Desserts: If you choose to include the occasional dessert (once to twice per week, maximum is recommended), keep the rest of the day low on the glycemic load spectrum to balance out the additional carbohydrates that are inevitably in a dessert. While, these desserts are still moderately low on the glycemic load spectrum, keeping to suggested serving sizes and overall balance are key!
