Know Your Glycemic Index with Veera

The Glycemic Index (GI) is a tool that measures how carbohydrates affect your blood glucose levels. It then ranks the quality of carbohydrates based on this score.

Low GI food: 55 or less
Mid GI food: 56 – 69
High GI food: 70+

Carbohydrates are an essential macronutrient in our diet and is almost always present in our daily meals. However, not all carbohydrate foods are equal.

High GI carbohydrates cause blood sugar levels to spike and then crash, whereas low GI foods are digested and absorbed more slowly. This slow release of glucose into the bloodstream is shown to be much more beneficial for the body –especially while managing weight, PCOS, diabetes and other health concerns.

This free tool can help you make an informed choice about the various food options and whether they’re good for your PCOS. Although being aware of the GI index of food items is a strong step in making healthy lifestyle changes, PCOS requires a holistic approach when it comes to your diet and exercise. At Veera, we help you take these steps with personalised nutrition and medical advice that go a long way in reversing PCOS and beyond!
