From Nutritional Data (http://nutritiondata.self.com/topics/glycemic-index)What is the Glycemic Index? The Glycemic Index is a numerical Index that ranks carbohydrates based on their rate of glycemic response (i.e. their conversion to glucose within the human body). Glycemic Index uses a scale of 0 to 100, with higher values given to foods that cause the most rapid rise in blood sugar. Pure glucose serves as a reference point, and is given a Glycemic Index (GI) of 100. The Glycemic Index Yields Some Surprises
The other day I went out to walk my dog around the neighborhood, as I am wont to do. It being early April the signs of incipient spring were very apparent: crocuses, buds, warmer air, the last piles of snow under the shrubberies gone, landscaping trucks dotting the roads, and more people out walking. One of the nice things about walking is not just where the legs take you, but where the mind goes. In this case I was thinking about my college days at a school in a highly urban environment, and the prodigious amount of walking I did.
Quest is bringing back their free sample program. Be sure to get your bars. I love this stuff. It's clean, has anywhere from 18-20 gramms of protein, filling and makes a perfect post/pre workout snack. My personal favorite is the white chocolate raspberry. Just be advised that if you happen to be allergic to almonds, most bars do contain them. Try them out and let me know what you think! -> https://www.facebook.com/QuestNutrition?sk=app_733419926675832
