Tips for Healthy Living: Pillar 3
Pillar 3: Control Rate of Carbohydrate Absorption
You may know that too much blood glucose (and the subsequent insulin spike) predisposes people to gaining unwanted fat pounds. Replacing particular carb-heavy items with fiber-rich foods can significantly blunt the glucose-insulin surge.
