Good Carbs, Bad Carbs

0

Presented to GlaxoSmithKline (Parsippany, New Jersey), November 22, 2005.

Highlights:

  • While no foods are “bad,” some carbohydrates promote better glycemic control than others.
  • The “best” carbohydrate choices for the most consistent, healthful blood glucose levels are the slowly-digested carbohydrates, the “tricklers.”
  • “Gushers,” which are quickly digested carbohydrates, become a good choice when blood glucose levels are too low and need to be quickly raised.

Gushers vs Tricklers


"Gushers" are quickly-digested carbohydrates that cause a rapid rise in blood glucose and fuel appetite.

"Tricklers" are slowly-digested carbohydrates that are gradually released into the bloodstream and sustain satiety. These are the good carbs.
