Fifty 50 Cookies, Coconut
Low glycemic. Artificially flavored. Fructose sweetened. Half our profits fund diabetes research. For use in a low glycemic diet. Over the past 20 years, researchers have taken a closer look at carbohydrate foods and how they affect blood glucose. This led some researchers to replace the classification of carbohydrates as either simple or complex with the theory that all carbohydrates are the same. Others however, pursued clinical studies that showed some foods increase blood sugar quickly and dramatically while other foods produce a slower rise. Further studies have shown a diet using low glycemic index food (those that produce less of a rise in blood glucose) can help people manage diabetes better and even lose weight at the same time. Pat Gawdun, Fifty 50's dietitian, suggested I try a low glycemic diet for my type 1 diabetes. I learned it is widely used in Europe, Australia and Canada so I tried it. It works! The amount of insulin I needed was reduced and my blood sugars were better controlled. Best of all, I did not need to make a major adjustment to my lifestyle to follow the low glycemic diet. It's simply a matter of being better informed about the carbohydrate choices you make each day. Even simple changes in your diet can have an effect.
