Snacks and Desserts (Low GI)

A tantalizing compilation of Low Glycemic Index (Low GI) & low fat snacks and desserts

Control a massive appetite: Eat foods with a low GI (under 55) such as apples, milk, yogurt, hummus, and nuts. Your body will digest these foods slowly leaving you feeling full longer & allowing you to eat less without feeling hungry. GI is a value obtained by monitoring a persons blood sugar after eating food. Foods that satisfy your hunger and blood sugar levels will leave you less likely to snack. Eat 5 meals (3 small meals & 2 snacks) each day to keep your blood sugar levels elevated.
