Sneak Attach Insulin Bombs
You must minimize your consumption of these foods. Many of these items are thought to be good for you and are included as key items in many diets and nutrition plans. They all have a very high glycemic index and usually cause a very strong insulin reaction in most people. “Cholesterol free” means nothing if the food item is high glycemic. Then more cholesterol is created by eating these foods than any normal food could contain. If eaten, they must be eaten with substantial protein and in very small quantities. Please see the detailed glycemic index chart for a complete list of high glycemic foods.
If you start your nutrition plan by eliminating these and adding more protein, vegetables, fish and flax omega-3 essential oils, you will be well on your way to a better diet.
