The smaller the GI, the better for losing weight.

To learn glycemic indexes is easy, however the same product may have different GI depending on the treatment.

For example, it is lower in crushed cereals than inFlakes or popcorn. In addition, do not forget that there are products that have GI, although small, but the fat content is high. It's chocolate and most nuts.
