Foods that have a low glycemic index are digested for longer, so you do not feel hungry for a long time, yet you have enough energy to carry out your daily duties. In contrast, foods with high GI quickly increase blood sugar levels because they are digesting very quickly, but that energy does not last long, so you will quickly get hungry.
Sweets, juices, potatoes and white flour, sugar and similar products have high GI. High-fiber foods, whole grains, fresh vegetables, but also olive oil, nuts and similar foods have low levels of GI, suppress hunger, and provide enough energy to last longer. This means that your body uses energy to digest these foods, so you can also regulate your body weight.
High calorie foods such as olive oil must be used sparingly, in case you are concerned about your weight, of course. On the other hand, consuming only low GI food will result in more efficient weight loss, because your body will have to use more energy to process this food.
