Low Glycemic Load Fruits
Low glycemic load fruits are the mainstay of RFBC’s diets. The high fiber of these fruits slow down digestion and allow our liver and pancreas to not get overloaded with their sugars. This is important for those with PCOS, Insulin Resistance, and Diabetes. The high fiber content of these fruits also slows digestion which means we are full longer. You can’t go wrong with low glycemic load fruits. Read my article Diabetes and Fruit over at the Health Foodist Webzine.
At Raw Food Boot Camp, we only eat fruit with a glycemic load of 10 or under. On the papayas, if they are very ripe, pass on them. They are known to slow/stall weight loss. While bananas are on our Rawk Starz fruit list, for fast weight loss, ditch them. Same with grapes.
