You will also be able to check the ingredient list for every item. I hope this helps! WeeWeeSnowbunny, November 6, Kick start for portion and food group reminder.
These frozen products taste so much better than the shelf stable kits. I just don't care for the bars and many other items in the shelf stable kits. I was worried this would take up a lot of space in the freezer, but it isn't that much packaging.
I don't like that the program says there is no measuring as there are many items you need to purchase in addition to what is included, and that needs to be measured. If everything was included in kit it would be awesome. Got it to get rid of the holiday weight I gained. Exercise is not required, but I am riding a stationary bike which has been on a vacation for quite some time.
Can anyone tell me what exactly is in this kit? I wish they would include what kinds of food in the description thank you.

Renee, January 11, Understanding the GI values of specific foods can help reduce harmful spikes in blood sugar, as sugars and carbohydrates are broken down and your metabolism releases insulin to aid in digestion. Limiting your intake of high GI foods is a first-step towards controlling your cravings, increasing energy, and weight loss.
By its very definition, foods with minimal to no carbohydrates will have no measurable GI value — so in general carb-free foods such as most meats, seafood, poultry, and vegetables have no GI value. Foods with a low GI scores of help you feel less hungry, provide you with a feeling of having more energy, and may lead to weight loss and provide a reduced risk of diabetes and improved heart health.
While looking through these GI scores, please be aware by itself this does NOT constitute a diet — there are some fruits with higher GI scores than some less-healthy processed food snacks. To learn more, see our blood sugar chart. The list of foods you have tested forGI is amazing but i am surprised that GI an be so low in foods that I, as a health coach would not recommend to my clients as they are so high in other ingredients that, for health or nutritional, purposes I would not recommend to my clients to put anywhere near their body.
All soft drinks for instance and cakes and etc. So many people where I live are on benefits and feed themselves on cheap bread and soft drinks, fries and other undesirable foods that make them obese and whilst a lot of this food in low in GI it is still causing them to get diabetes from obesity. It would be good to include in this list a column for high bad fats in a food item or amount of sugar that creates this huge problem in foods people love and are cheap to buy. GI index is a good guide but does not answer the lack of good nutritional in foods that create major problems creating obesity and ill health amongst the majority of people I see.
You could make a spreadsheet with this information plus the fat content in another column. Highlight the bad foods in red, the moderate foods in yellow, and the good foods in green. I am also on benefits and I stay away from big name grocery stores, even Walmart, for my produce. I shop at farmers markets, that take the benefits, and at ethnic stores Mexican, Asian, Middle Eastern because they have much better prices.
I want to compute the GL of these products I bake but can find no glycemic index for any of these products. As a matter of fact, I can find no referendce to whole wheat or any other kind of wheat flour and do not understand why. If you know of any place I can find glycemic index numbers for almond flour or almond meal, flaxseeds and other products that are not wheat, please advise — with all the attention on these products, I do not understand the void — can you help me?
The University of Sydney has an excellent website full of glycemic index info. If I make my own bread or dumplings, pancakes, muffins etc which flours, if any, are low GI? What about sprouted grain breads? This is because the GI rating of a food must be tested physiologically that is in real people.
What should you do with your own baking? Try to increase the soluble fibre content by partially substituting flour with oat bran, rice bran or rolled oats and increase the bulkiness of the product with dried fruit, nuts, muesli, All-Bran or unprocessed bran.
Bread made from sprouted grains might well have a lower blood-glucose raising ability than bread made from normal flour. When grains begin to sprout, carbohydrates stored in the grain are used as the fuel source for the new shoot. Chances are that the more readily available carbs stored in the wheat grain will be used up first, thereby reducing the amount of carbs in the final product. Furthermore, if the whole kernel form of the wheat grain is retained in the finished product, it will have the desired effect of lowering the blood glucose level.
Why is it that apprently the longer you cook some foods i. The more well-done the pasta is, the faster it goes into your bloodstream. Al Dente takes longer, therefore blood sugar does not spike. The longer the starch cooks the more it gets broken down and therefore, is more readily digested. Serving the pasta or potato cold has an even better gylcemic effect than reheating.
