Re: [IP] Fruit with breakfast



The glycemic index is some sort of measurement for foods that have sugar in
them. I am sure you can information about it on our IP website - because
people talk about it. I know our local bookstore has them too but I haven't
gotten "around tuit" (an old joke about a wooded "round tuit" coin to give
when somebody asks you to do something - they give you this wooded coin to
remind you to do it). Anyway that is what is up about the glycemic index - I
think you look at the # of carbs in food plus the amount of sugars per
serving - it is good to stay within the lower number of sugar so that your
BG doesn't shoot too high. I hope that helps. Sharon B
