MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 01:40 PM) Lets start 2017 with a Win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 01:41 PM) Hack should be playing
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 03:39 PM) wooooo5-11
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 04:00 PM) J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) OK so Bill O brien and Sean Payton might get fired according to Fox this morning
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) I would do anything to get one of them as OC
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) texans coach? i doubt he gets fired
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) but he would be ideal if the jets were to flush bowles out
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 04:36 PM) http://www.nj.com/je...trol_of_je.html
azjetfan Icon : (05 January 2017 - 09:54 PM) Sean Payton will get another HC gig. Obrien would be good.
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:18 PM) Howard from Alabama seems legit. #88 TE
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:20 PM) Williams the WR from Clemson looks like they are out to get him. He has taken some huge hits
vjdbbq Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:12 AM) We'll take Williams in the first round .
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 10:48 AM) I'd love Howard in the 2nd round if he's still there. I like Williams a lot as well, but I just don't see WR being big enough of a need, and there should be better talent on the board at 6
Jetsfan115 Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:21 PM) Raiders OC Musgrave not expected to return to OAK. what do you think about getting him? he did wonders with the oakland offense this year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:39 PM) Definitely an appealing choice given with his history of progressing Carr. We need someone with a track record of grooming young QBs
MikeGangGree... Icon : (12 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) I want Watson now! after what he did Monday night I'm sold on him at QB. He moved the ball all night on Alabama and after hurts scored that TD he just told his team "Lets end this"
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:31 PM) An Ohio prosecutor says he wants to know what punishment Cincinnati Bengals player Adam "Pacman" Jones faces from the NFL before deciding how to proceed over Jones' latest arrest, Dan Sewell of the Associated Press reports..

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters tells WKRC-TV he's asking "what is the normal" for a player with multiple offenses and who's been suspended before.

An NFL spokesman said on Thursday that Jones' case is "under review" and declined to comment further.

Jones was jailed Jan. 3 on charges he head-butted police and spit on a nurse after his arrest for assault. Authorities say he was so combative he had to be placed in a restraint chair.

Jones says he anticipates the charges will be dismissed.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:32 PM) we wont get watson. he's going 1st overall to the browns
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:06 PM) Is Watson a product of Clemson's staff and supporting cast? Taj Boyd also put up some decent numbers if I remember correctly but he couldn't even make a scout team in the NFL.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) From what I have read (although limited) he is not the highest ranked QB in the draft.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) "No quarterback in this draft -- not Mitch Trubisky, not Watson, not DeShone Kizer -- is considered a sure thing. The folks at Scouts Inc. rank Trubisky, Watson and Kizer as the 21st, 38th and 46th prospects on their big board, respectively." ESPN
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:12 PM) If we can get a decent return for Richardson we may be able to make a move into the mid teens to early 20s if the Brass really likes Watson.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:13 PM) Personally I don't think the jets have a clue on who they will take. We still have to hit FA and manage our roster
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 11:46 PM) Jets to interview Broncos assistant Studesville for OC
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:28 PM) Why? seems like a weird choice
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:29 PM) Leonard Williams replacing Khalil Mack in Pro Bowl
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm not buying Watson, even after that championship game. Dude threw too many picks in his day
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm really curious to see what we get for Richardson, but I have a bad feeling his value is at an all time low between his crap season and bad attitude
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 12:16 AM) I agree. He is a first round talent but a fourth round headache. We will be lucky to get a 2nd
Chadforpresi... Icon : (14 January 2017 - 08:41 AM) Yeah precisely. 2nd rounder would be a huge stretch. 3rd or 4th is more likely
vjdbbq Icon : (14 January 2017 - 02:18 PM) Send Sheldon someplace he will never see the playoffs ; like Jacksonville ; then he will have time to find da ho's .
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 07:25 PM) R Sherman is getting torched by the Falcons.
vjdbbq Icon : (16 January 2017 - 09:37 AM) Pats vs Pitt - root for injuries
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) GB-ATL game is gonna be a hell of a shootout. that throw rodgers made on 3rd and 20 with 12 seconds left in a tied game was ridiculous. 35 yards rolling out to his left a perfect placed ball on the sideline.
azjetfan Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:50 PM) Winters resigned to 4 year deal. $7 million per year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:51 PM) Seems like a slightly steep price but overall cool with it, he's turned into a good player and is still young. Just needs to stay healthy.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:12 PM) seems like a good deal. they were saying he could have earned over 8 million in the open market
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 08:12 AM) Is he looking for a new ass ?
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 08:12 AM) :saythat:

low glycemic food index

#1 Guest_News_Flash_*

  • Group: Guests

Posted 21 May 2006 - 09:20 AM

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.
