The Power of the Glycemic Index

Years ago, long before it was mainstream medical knowledge, I learned about the Power of the Glycemic Index and how avoiding high glycemic index foods is crucial to cutting your cravings and having consistent energy through out the day.

Once I learned this secret, Weight-loss became so much easier.

The glycemic index measures how fast a carb breaks down into sugar to be utilized as energy or stored in your fat cells as "energy reserves."

A high glycemic food breaks down very fast and give you the spike in energy… and usually a crash afterwards which causes an uncontrollable craving to get your blood sugar back up! Think eating a bunch of candy for quick energy and then crashing and raiding your cupboards for more junk food!

A low glycemic food breaks down slower. These foods are often call “good” carbs or “complex” carbs.

Low glycemic foods generally give you consistent energy for hours to come with no uncontrollable food cravings.

The RESET Shakes and Bars all low glycemic and should help with getting you over the food craving roller coaster.

If you want more details on the glycemic index, watch this seven minute video from the Reset Program Video Tutorial Series with one of my business mentors, Chris Lopez.
