Glycemic Load (GL) measures the rate at which food is turned into glucose for energy via insulin.
Fruits and vegetables are a crucial part of a healthy diet to maintain balanced glucose and insulin levels and help avoid the onset of PCOS-linked disorders like pre- and type 2 diabetes. But both food groups have differing GL ratings, which affect those levels. So which are most helpful?
This week we show you the best fruits. There are many fruits that are very low in GL and have little impact on blood sugar. A low GL value is considered 10 or less.
One 4-ounce serving of the following fruits all have a GL value of less than 10.
- Fresh apricots
- Fresh cherries
- Fresh watermelon
Next week we’ll show you the best low GL vegetables.
