Glycemic Index

The glycemic index is a scale that ranks food from 0 to 100 based on the number of carbohydrates in them and indicates how quickly a food causes your blood sugar to rise.

Foods that are high on the Glycemic Index (GI) can cause harmful blood sugar spikes in people suffering from diabetes. High GI foods also make it tougher for you to maintain a healthy weight. This is why some people suffering from diabetes use GI to plan their meals.

A nutritious and well-balanced diet should include a wide range of foods, so that you are not limited to consuming just low GI foods. Although, knowing where a certain food lies on the GI scale can help you make healthy choices.
Below, we look at the GI of various foods:

ACIDIC AND ALKALINE FOODS

Acidic foods/acid forming foods: A diet high in acidic foods (E.g.:- red meat, soft drinks, sugar etc.) are foods that produce high amounts of acid in the body. When this acid waste enters the blood stream, the blood system tries to dispose it off by storing it in the vital organs like the heart, liver, colon, pancreas etc.
On ingestion of excess acid forming foods, excess acid corrodes tissues and organs. This leads to various diseases/disorders and thus, forms a breeding ground for harmful bacteria and other microorganisms that can damage the glands and organs. The extra acid also leads to weight gain, since the extra acid is stored in the fat cells of the body.
To combat this, it is healthy to keep a balance between consumption of acidic and alkaline foods.

Alkaline foods/alkaline forming foods: An alkaline diet emphasizes alkaline foods such as whole fruits and vegetables and certain whole grains, which are low in caloric density. Healthy alkaline diet foods involve the ideal balance between acidifying and alkalizing foods. These foods help to balance the acidity levels of the fluids in your body, including the blood and urine.
An optimal acid – base balance of the bodily fluids will ensure a reduced prevalence of disorders and diseases. By choosing more alkaline foods, you should be able to “alkalize” your diet and improve health.
