More than just genetics: Lifestyle choices impact GI health

e is processed into the blood stream, raising blood sugar levels. Foods that are lower in glycemic index take somewhat longer to raise blood sugar levels. Glycemic load multiplies the glycemic index of a food by the amount of carbohydrates (in grams) per standard serving size.

Researchers found that LGI-LGL breakfast is associated with keeping the metabolic response active at a higher rate for a longer period of time than other breakfast options with less of an increase in glucose or insulin levels. The LGI-LGL breakfast increased levels of the hormone peptide YY on the morning after the breakfast. Peptide YY, which is produced in the stomach as a response to food, promotes satiety and tends to decrease food intake. Surprisingly, participants who consumed the HGI-HGL breakfast experienced more satiety and fullness compared to those who consumed the other breakfast options. However, this breakfast also caused higher levels of glucose and insulin during the morning. Of the three options, the HGI-LGL breakfast produced the highest insulin levels somewhat later, after lunchtime.

"Consuming foods with low glycemic levels and glycemic load may be a helpful way to naturally stimulate metabolic response," said Luigi Benini, M.D., University of Verona and lead author of the study. "More research must be done to further investigate the potential long-term impact of dietary manipulations on metabolism."

Six Months Supplementation with Conjugated Linoleic Acid Decreases Fat Mass Region-specifically in Overweight and Obese [Abstract 360]
