ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:48 PM) 2nd and 3rd stringers making the team had something to prove and even our 2nd stringers got owned so yes Im very concerned. The first stringers need breaks and also if some of them get injured they need to step up. So no after this performance start to finish Im very concerned

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 06:40 AM) Even in seasons where the Jets blew, I haven't seen anyone refer to the preseason to complain. Ever.

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 04:01 PM) Holmes can still play, problem is that hes also a cancer. He wore out his welcome with the Jets
ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 08:23 PM) did Hill get cut?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:00 PM) Haven't seen anything yet
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:06 PM) Whos ready for the season!!? WOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (30 August 2014 - 11:54 AM) Hill has been cut
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 August 2014 - 01:24 PM) Who wants to take bets he ends up in NE
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:18 PM) We'll I guess you guys are fools then in thinking im a fool for being concerned. Do any of you even know that in 2013 the Jets gave up the most passing yards in the franchise since 1986? And our secondary right now is worse than last year right now. To not be concerned is utterly foolish.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:19 PM) Unless our d-line has a monstrous year odds are the team will be eaten up in the pass. Every team will game plan to exploit the pass this year.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:56 PM) Patterson got cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:24 PM) Patterson must have been a huge cancer to get cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:26 PM) is there a midseason draft? we need a DB!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) Our week 1 starting CBs will be Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls... wow
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) interesting that Simms and Boyd were released
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 04:00 PM) No more McIntyre
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:20 PM) Pretty sure some of these cuts like Simms and McIntyre were made for removing some more cap space to try to find some decent corners and maybe another reliable wr. Possibly get some players cheap. I'd say the current 53 roster will change a good bit in the next week.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:23 PM) I just hope Geno doesn't get hurt or we are horse f*cked. Vick sure as hell can't stay healthy for a full season. I guess the FO could also be think of picking up an old vet cut as 3rd qb. Simms is ok but I'd never trust him to win a regular season game if he was put in.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:25 PM) Anyway it's going yo be an interesting week.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) I doubt it was about freeing up money, considering we are way under. Like more than $20 mil, way more than enough to find some vet minimum CB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:19 PM) it's more about the roster numbers. McIntyre was replaced by rookies. IK showed flashes when he played
bleedsgreen Icon : (31 August 2014 - 08:34 AM) McIntyre is a shock to me he was a solid backup and made some big plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) 1 week till we are 1-0
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) we need to annihilate the GAYders
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:28 PM) We claimed McFadden from the Browns. Knows the system should be able to contribute right away
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:29 PM) Watching the Browns game now. Playing all three CB spots. Looks OK. A little grabby although he has not been called for it
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:30 PM) Might be a little aggressive and get burnt over top
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 10:26 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 AM) ^^^ agreed
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:25 PM) all the admins on this page should be fired
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:25 PM) for being assclowns
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:17 PM) The Jets are fucked at CB, signing some bums now. We need Milliner to get healthy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 04:20 PM) We have signed CB Phillip Adams
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:55 PM) The Gayders are playing Derek Carr against the JETS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:55 PM) our D Line better put him in a WORLD OF PAIN
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:11 PM) Rookie QB in our house...Rex do your thing!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:56 PM) with Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls as our starting CBs
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:00 PM) our offense should be better than last year, Geno looks more comfortable
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:03 PM) The Jets released Jeremiah George and Ellis Lankster, hopefully George finds his way to the PS. AJ Edds was re-signed
santana Icon : (Today, 11:08 AM) Fire the admins!

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.
