Slow-acting carbs only cause a slight increase in blood sugar. Fast-acting carbs, on the other hand, are converted very quickly to glucose by the body, causing blood sugar levels to rise and fall rapidly, which has serious health consequences. One way used to measure how carbohydrate foods affect blood sugar levels is by a food's Glycemic Load. What is Glycemic Load Glycemic Load is a further development of the Glycemic Index. Glycemic Load takes this one step further and using the Glycemic Index of a food, determines whether foods contain slow-acting or fast-acting carbs based on a standard serving of that food.
Eating a Low Glycemic Load Diet Those following a low Glycemic Load Diet eat controlled portions, restrict calories, and opt for foods that are low Glycemic Load. According to Dr. The Glycemic Index. Estimated Glycemic Load™ Nutrition Data's Estimated Glycemic Load (eGL)™ predicts a food's Glycemic Load, even when its Glycemic Index is unknown.
Understanding Glycemic Load The Glycemic Load is the most practical way to apply the Glycemic Index to dieting, and is easily calculated by multiplying a food's Glycemic Index (as a percentage) by the number of net carbohydrates in a given serving. Glycemic Load gives a relative indication of how much that serving of food is likely to increase your blood-sugar levels. GL = GI/100 x Net Carbs(Net Carbs are equal to the Total Carbohydrates minus Dietary Fiber) As a rule of thumb, most nutritional experts consider Glycemic Loads below 10 to be "low," and Glycemic Loads above 20 to be "high.
