Good Carbs/Bad Carbs
The right carbohydrates — like vegetables and fruits — speed your success with ShapeWorks™ and leave you feeling energized and satisfied. The wrong carbohydrates — like pastries, chips and candy — can slow your progress and leave you tired and hungry. Three important factors help distinguish the good from the bad: glycemic index, glycemic load and fiber.
Glycemic Index (GI)measures how fast the carbohydrates in a food you eat turn into sugar. High-GI foods are converted quickly, encouraging your body to store fat and making weight loss more challenging. Low-GI foods are converted more slowly, helping your body maintain a healthy blood-sugar balance, for effective weight loss.
Glycemic Load (GL)measures the amount of sugar a food actually releases in your body by factoring in both the GI and the carbohydrate count in a given serving. Low-GL foods are best for your ShapeWorks™ program. (Usually low-GI foods will also have a low-GL.)
Fiberslows the rate at which a carbohydrate food is absorbed by your body and converted into sugar. High-fiber carbohydrates are converted more slowly than low-fiber carbohydrates, making them the best for weight loss. In general, high-fiber foods have a low GI and GL.
