Eating Low Glycemic Index Foods For Weight Loss

I’ve always believed that choosing  whole foods that also have a low glycemic index will help to ensure good health.  Low GI also means low inflammation, low inflammation means a much lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and many more ailments.  Chronic inflammation is the root cause of most disease.

Now it seems there is another reason for eating a low GI diet; long-term weight loss!  I have seen  a few articles about this lately and when Rich sent me this NPR story yesterday (thanks, hon!), it seemed worthy of sharing.  Check it out here:

Peace and greens,

Melissa
