A Low-GL Diet for Weight Loss & Management

Glycemic Load – or GL Load for short – is a unit of measurement, rather like grams, litres, centimetres and calories are. GLs are used to measure the amount of sugar and starch in food and their impact on the body. They show how much carbohydrate there is in each food (and therefore how much glucose it will create and release into the bloodstream as blood sugar) and how fast the carbohydrate will break down into glucose (and therefore how quickly your blood sugar levels will rise). 

This information is important because blood sugar levels are linked to hunger and the way we eat. When you haven’t eaten for a while, your blood sugar level will dip, and you will become hungry. When you eat a food containing carbohydrate, glucose is released into your bloodstream and your blood sugar level will rise again. The key to achieving your perfect weight is to keep your blood sugar levels stable. To do this you need to eat healthy foods that provide you with glucose in the right quantities.

Low GL Load foods release their glucose more slowly so you maintain stable energy levels for longer.

When you eat a low GL Load diet:

  • You will stop producing more glucose than you can use, so won’t gain fat.
  • You won’t suffer from food cravings.
  • Your body will be reprogrammed to burn fat rapidly.
  • You will be able to lose weight and sustain your weight loss permanently.

Three simple rules

The beauty of eating a low GL load diet is that people say they just don’t feel hungry. This is because you eat regularly and can have decent portions. A low GL load diet’s also easy to follow. You just need to follow three golden rules: 

1. Eat no more than 40 GLs a day
2. Eat protein with carbohydrate
3. Graze don’t gorge 

Your GL intake breaks down as 10 GLs each for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus 5 GLs for a mid morning and mid afternoon snack – so you eat (or graze) regularly instead of gorging at one or two big meals.
