azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:41 PM) Maybe longer if we could get out of it after 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 11:36 AM) backloaded 4 year deal ca cut after 2 years wit minimum cap hit
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 02:22 PM) Jets sign free agent OT Charlles Brown
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:48 PM) We won't be able to backload it. He won't accept the offer. Keep in mind he requested he release because they couldn't come to an agreement on a raise.
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:49 PM) He is probably looking for $7 million or more per year.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 09:44 AM) he was only making 5.5 million this year. we can give him 10 mil signing bonus onf a 5 year deal and a low base salary (like 3 mil a year) it'll average out to 5 mil a year, but he'll get 13 million this year (more then double) and will cost 5 mil a year against the cap for the rest of the deal
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Any news on Mathis at all? Haven't heard anything since his release.
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Also, Sam Baker was cut today as well
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 04:52 PM) Titans releasing RB Shonn Greene
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 June 2015 - 10:40 PM) TEH WARRIORS
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 11:08 PM) This trophy ceremony awkward as fuck I had to turn it off
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:02 PM) It really was. It was more Doris Burke interviewing the Warriors than it was a trophy ceremony. Plus Adam Silver forgot to hand the Warriors owner the trophy after he was done talking to the crowd.
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:03 PM) R.I.P. Stuart Scott
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE SILVER
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE BURKE
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 June 2015 - 06:27 PM) THE A-ROD!!
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:19 PM) god damn week no activity in here
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:20 PM) might have to chop this table up into fire wood
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:26 PM) FIRE WOOD!
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) Kristaps Porzingis???
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:55 PM) You'd think Isiah Thomas was still running the Knicks last night.
santana Icon : (27 June 2015 - 07:30 PM) Lol yeah no clue about those names
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) Is there any chance that Porzingis ends up being good?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) I'm guessing he won't be the next Pau Gasol or Dirk Nowviski
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:41 AM) You never know, he could be as good as Gasol brothers or Dirk. Honestly the Knicks picking at #4 did the same thing the 3 teams picking ahead of them did. Picked a 19 year who could go boom or bust.
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:45 AM) Porzingis seems to have the "I'm going to prove them wrong" type of attitude needed to overcome people's doubts about him. Hopefully he'll have the work ethic that goes along with that attitude.
azjetfan Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:17 PM) In other news I decided to shave the dome. Since the hair was falling out anyway I figured I would show it who's boss
santana Icon : (29 June 2015 - 01:11 PM) Deisel up shave the dome
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 June 2015 - 04:49 PM) Welcome home.
azjetfan Icon : (29 June 2015 - 08:59 PM) I feel fast.
azjetfan Icon : (01 July 2015 - 07:53 PM) Shot an 86 today. Personal best.
santana Icon : (01 July 2015 - 08:19 PM) well done
santana Icon : (01 July 2015 - 08:19 PM) im going to play friday
blk_orion Icon : (02 July 2015 - 08:57 AM) play what? golf?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) Sheldon Richardson suspended 4 game for substance abuse.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) f***
ganggreen2003 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 06:15 PM) DAMNIT TO f***ing HELL!!!!

low glycemic food index

#1 Guest_News_Flash_*

As of late, there has been much mention about the glycemic
index. People everywhere talk about it and food advertisements
use it liberally to promote certain products. But just what is
this glycemic index and what does it mean for you? Why is it
that people are resorting to it as a means of weight loss and
overall healthy eating choices? What is the reason that the
G.I. is becoming the staple food guide of the free world?



The glycemic index is a means of measuring the effects of
different foods on your blood sugar levels, in other words, how
rapidly carbohydrates (sugars) are absorbed. Foods with a high
G.I. release quickly into your blood causing a rapid rise in
your blood sugar levels. Foods with a low G.I. release slowly
into your blood helping to keep your blood sugar levels more
stable and steady.



When a high G.I. food is eaten and blood sugar levels rise
rapidly, there is a high response of insulin (a hormone that
regulates blood sugar levels). The insulin works quickly to
deposit this excess blood sugar into muscle cells in the form
of glycogen (stored energy), and when the glycogen stores are
full, the rest is stored in the fat cells as, yes, you guessed
it, fat! Because of the over-response of insulin caused by the
over-response of blood sugar, the blood sugar is quickly
depleted to lower than normal levels, causing that burst of
energy you felt to crash quickly.

















Low G.I. foods which release at a slower rate do not cause such
an insulin response. This allows for a blood sugar level
stabilization over a longer period of time because a slow
release of blood sugar means a slow release of insulin meaning
that it can regulate blood sugar levels more accurately. And as
you may have guessed, there is much less of a deposit to the fat
cells also! This is why when you eat a low G.I. food your energy
levels stay up longer and you don't feel hungry too soon after
eating like you do with high G.I. foods.





The glycemic index is measured by assessing how fast of a
release of sugar different foods have into the blood verses the
rate of pure glucose (blood sugar itself). A score of 100 has
been assigned to the rate of release of glucose. If a food has
a release or index of 70 or higher, that means it has a rapid
release and is a high G.I. food and should be avoided. If a
food has an index of 56 to 69 it has a somewhat rapid release
but not an extreme one and is considered a medium G.I. food and
should be limited. Any food with an index of 55 or less has a
slow release and is considered a low G.I. food and is good to
consume any time.



Now combining high G.I. foods with low ones in an overall meal
will affect the G.I. of the whole meal. This is known as the
glycemic value. If you had a potato with a G.I. of say 90 and a
chicken breast with a G.I. of 0, the glycemic value of the meal
would be 45, in the low G.I. range. So when you are trying to
stay on the low side of the G.I. which you should be, you do
not have to completely eliminate all high G.I. foods as long as
you only consume them in combination with low ones to lower the
glycemic load of the meal as a whole.




Examples of high G.I. foods are any white flour bread, cakes of
muffins, white potatoes, ripe bananas and honey.



Some medium G.I. foods are red potatoes, jellies and jams, bran
muffin's, whole wheat bread and most tropical fruit's.



Some low G.I. foods are most vegetables, most northern fruits,
yams and sweet potatoes, grain cereals, any meats and dairy
products, popcorn and most nuts.



Now keep in mind that calories still do count and that means
that just because you are eating foods with a low G.I. doesn't
mean that you can eat as much as you want. Staying with mostly
low G.I. foods will help keep blood sugar levels stable and
will help control your appetite but in the end you still need
to watch your overall calorie count to lose or maintain weight
and not gain weight.
