ADVERTISEMENT So You Think Sugar's The Enemy? Diabetics & Dieters Turn to Glycemic Index for Sweet Relief Did you know that sugar may be better for you than either potatoes or white bread? Yes, sugar! mm Why? [ Because sugar, « despite all its J negative press, is actually digested ^^^^ i_ i into the body more slowly, causing a smaller rise in blood sugar levels. That's exactly what Matthew Lore discovered four years ago. A healthy New York publishing executive, Matthew was shocked when he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Then his doctors told him how his diet would have to change, and shock turned to dismay, then disbelief. After years of only eating the healthiest foods he could find — or make — the dietary guidelines he was presented with not only sovmded depressing, they didn't make sense. So he turned to the World Wide Web in search of the latest research in the field. There he discovered the glycemic index, the system that ranks foods according to their immediate effect on blood sugar (glucose) levels. According to the system it's not so much whether you're eating sugars or carbohydrates that counts, as how quickly and easily your choices are digested into your bloodstream. Potatoes and white bread are digested one-two-three, thereby making yovir blood sugar and insulin levels soar — a danger for diabetes sufferers (as well as the rest of us who don't even realize how prone we are to the disease). Amazingly, many foods containing sugar — which diabetics have long thought they couldn't eat at all — have a lower glycemic index rating than either of those two staples. Go figure! While rapid digestion of foods with high glycenuc index levels, like potatoes, white bread or most rice, causes an almost immediate surge in energy, it's also responsible for crashing lows and feelings of ravenous hvmger just a couple of hours after eating. How does that song go? What goes up, must come down... The flip side of that equation, of course, is that by choosing the right foods, you can get rid of those torturous hunger pangs (since low glycemic index foods make you feel full longer), and keep that energy rolling along. But here's the best part. Now you may be able to The real scoop... ''Forget Sugar Busters. Forget The Zone.

"Here, at last, is a book that explains what we know about the glycemic index and its importance in designing a diet for optimum health," exulted Andrew Weil, M.D., best- selling author of SpoJttaneous Healing and 8 Weeks to Optimum Health. "Using the glycemic index has turned restrictive eating habits upside down," says Matthew, who utilizing this critical information to better manage his own condition, and enjoy food again decided to publish it as well. "This is a big deal, whether you're a diabetic hoping to reduce the need for medication or insulin, a chronic dieter ready to lose weight once and for all (but xmwiUing to settle for a life of deprivation), or simply interested m staying healthy and feeling energetic."
