Comprehensive list of foods with their glycemic index values. In general, the higher the glycemic index, the higher the chance of sugar rush and crash, leading to overeating, weight gain, and increased risk of insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and obesity.

Insulin resistance causes weight gain

It is important to realize that insulin resistance that affects up to 71 percent of the population in the United States and similar percent of the population in many countries, leads to weight gain and obesity, and not otherway around.

Obesity and insulin resistance

The popular notion that obesity is the cause of insulin resistance is recently disproven and it now is recognized that obesity is a result of the underlying metabolic process caled insulin resistance in most people.

A diet low in glycemic index or glycemic load, with adequate protein, and fiber can help reduce the risk of excess weight gain by reducinginsulin resistance.

The glycemic index is classified in to Low GI or Glycemic Index, medium GI, and high GI based on the glycemic index of foods.

  • Low glycemic index foods have a GI value of 55 or less
  • Medium glycemic Index foods have a GI value of between 56 - 69
  • High glycemic Index foods have a GI value of 70 or more

How do they determine the glycemic index of foods?

The glycemic index is a number obtained by monitoring a persons blood sugar after eating the food which in turn signifies how much of the anabolic hormone, insulin, is needed to utilize the carbohydrate and how quickly does the body has to produce this hormone.

What went wrong with our diet?

Instead of blaming the victim for obesity, or yourself for obesity, it is important to understand what drives the weight gain, such as insulin resistance that affects up to 71 percent of the entire population out of which 35 percent already have metabolic syndrome.

Confusing choices

With over 20,000 books written on this topic with so much misleading information, let a trained practicing weight loss physician, Dr Prab R. Tumpati,MD educate you on the true science and art of obesity medicine.

Why the food pyramid failed?

The now withdrawn and failed food guide pyramid was a disaster as it advocated a low fat, but glycemic diet that leads to increased risk of insulin resistance which in turn causes weight gain.

Metabolic starvation in the obese

Most people that gain weight are not on a mission to gain weight intentionally. It is the paradoxical metabolic starvation that happens in the obese due to insulin resistance with a compensatory increase in the anabolic hormone called insulin that drives weight gain, hunger and metabolic starvation leading to food cravings, and weight gain!
