  • (0:00) Intro
  • (0:40) News and views
    • Sarah says she is extra bubbly, but possibly not that coherent of a mood today. Who knows what will happen!
    • Sarah has come to the realization that we never really grow up, but shes learned that her capacity to juggle everything and just keep swimming has increased dramatically.
    • Stacy agrees and adds that this time of year results in a lot more stress both good and bad which can quickly fill our plates!
    • This weeks topic is a continuation of last weeks, The Link Between Carb Intolerance and Gut Health, but focused on infants and children, particularly those that arent breast fed or are born via C-section.

Dont toy with glycemic index Dr. William Davis

Carbs 123rf

Here is a discussion I first posted in my Wheat Belly Total Health book, chapter 7: Grainless Living Day-to-Day.

Glycemic index, or GI, describes how high blood sugar climbs over 90 minutes after consuming a food compared to glucose.

The GI of a chicken drumstick? Zero: No impact on blood sugar. How about three fried eggs? Zero, too. This is true for other meats, oils and fats, seeds, mushrooms, and non-starchy vegetables. You eat any of these foods and blood sugar doesnt budge, no glycation phenomena follow, no glucotoxic or lipotoxic damage to such things as your pancreas.

There is nothing intrinsically wrong with the concept of GI nor of the related concept, glycemic load, GL, a measure that also factors in the quantity of food. The problem is how the values for GI and GL are interpreted. For instance, categories of GI are arbitrarily broken down into:

High glycemic index: 70 or greater
Moderate glycemic index: 56-69
Low glycemic index: 55 or less

This is like being a little bit more or less pregnant. By this scheme, cornflakes, puffed rice, and pretzels have high GIs above 70, thereby sending your blood sugar through the roof, while whole grain bread, oatmeal, and rice have low GIs. A typical non-diabetic person consuming a typical serving of cornflakes, e.g., 1 cup cereal in cup milk, will thereby experience a blood sugar in the neighborhood of 180 mg/dlvery high and more than sufficient to set the process of glycation and glucotoxicity on fire, add to adrenal disruption, cataract formation, destruction of cartilage, hypertension, heart disease, and neurological deterioration or dementia. (Blood sugars will vary, of course, depending on body weight, degree of overweight, insulin sensitivity, time of day, and other factors, but this would be typical. Someone with pre-diabetes or diabetes will have a higher blood sugar.)

How about a low-glycemic index food, such as a bowl of oatmeal, 1 cup cooked, in cup milk? A typical response: blood sugar 170 mg/dllower, yes, but still quite awful, triggering all the same undesirable phenomena triggered by the...
