Eating for Sustained Energy 3 | Food & Drink
Gabi Steenkamp , Liesbet Delport
Eating for Sustained Energy 3 was written in response to a genuine need among Gabi and Liesbet’s patients for a practical and easy way to use slow release (low GI) carbohydrates in everyday meals. The glycemic index (Gl) is a physiological measure of how a carbohydrate food affects blood glucose levels. It is a solid nutritional tool that works best to regulate blood glucose levels, resulting in sustained energy all day long. The more Liesbet and Gabi applied it, the more they realised its beneficial impact on their patients’ lives.
Not only does using the GI markedly improve blood glucose control in those with diabetes, it also helps to curtail hunger in slimmers, combats fatigue, regulates blood glucose levels of children with concentration problems, enhances performance of sportsmen and -women, lowers triglycerides in those with raised blood triglycerides, and prevents the over-secretion of insulin in those suffering from hypoglycemia and hyperinsulinemia, combating high blood pressure and longstanding excessive weight. In short, everybody should know how to use the GI as a means of attaining optimum health, which can lead to an energetic life.
