Another thing………when eating high GI whole foods (white potatoes, white rice etc) and combined with a meal with protein, there isnt much difference between a low GI carb source and a high one. Ive done lots of experiments and it just doesnt make a whole lot of difference.

The more important thing is the glycemic load. If someone is eating a huge amount of low GI carbs, its still going to make blood sugar rise quickly regardless of its GI. Just some food for thought….
