High glycemic index foods will cause a rapid rise in blood sugar and insulin secretion. These are your "once a week" or so foods. They should be used as the occasional treat. All processed foods will fall into this category (you know, it comes in a box with little bags inside the box?) as will ANYTHING made with white flour.
Vegetables and Salad GreensCarrots (raw) - the trick with carrots is to only eat a few
White potato (mashed, baked, boiled)
Beans, Grains, and CerealBagels
Brown or white rice (boiled)
Grape NutsThere's something so important that I'm going to say it again: ALL WHITE FLOUR products have a high GI rating. It's best to stay away from them entirely.
And as a side note, if you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, you may have a wheat intolerance. In which case any bread or wheat based product could cause your symptoms to flare up. If this is you, eat only low glycemic for a month and see if you feel better.
