I had planned to write an article about the glycemic index this month, since it’s an important topic for people looking to support heart health. But then I came across an excellent article by Susan Bowerman on DiscoverGoodNutrition.com, “Why the Glycemic Index can help you choose a healthy diet.” The Glycemic Index (GI) can be difficult to grasp, but Susan does an exceptional job explaining it. Instead of writing another article on the topic, I decided to share her article with you.
