Low Glycemic Impact eating means choosing to pair your foods in a way that minimally impacts your blood sugars. “Glycemic” is just a way to say, blood sugar levels. This concept aligns with the Trim Healthy Mama way! There are many books and resources out there, that describe different ways to arrange your meals. Our pick: Trim Healthy Mama, the plan which you can buy here!
But the common theme, is to separate carbs and fats so that your body doesn’t have to chose to store either the carbs or the fats. See, unless you have a high metabolism like growing kids or super-star athletes, your body can only handle so much “glycemic load” or amount of calories/fats/carbs that it has to choose how to burn. By separating these food groups, your body doesn’t have to choose what to store since you are only providing enough food to burn.
