    Wink *** GLYCEMIC LOAD AFFECT YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE IN proportion?

    Shop Now
    say something has a glycemic load of 20 and something else is 50. is the relative difference of it affecting your blood glucose (which affects blood pressure) increased by 30%?

    how much of a difference to your blood glucose (which affects blood pressure) is 10 and 100? seems meaningless.

    Instead of asking these weird and probably pointless questions, why dont you just ask what you really want to know?

    The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

    The difference between a food that has a GI of 10 and one that has a GI of 100 is usually the fat or protein contained in the lower GI food.

    GI is kind of a useless measure. Of course, some people like to create spreadsheets and track useless info. You should probably do that. You might discover some ultimate truth.

    @eKatherine "The difference between a food that has a GI of 10 and one that has a GI of 100 is usually the fat or protein contained in the lower GI food"

    -- ok thanks but that doesn't answer "is the relative difference of it affecting your blood glucose (which affects blood pressure) increased by 30%?"

    @Zach people that aren't very intelligent seem to miss that this IS what we want to know =)

    Then why aren't you doing research on every single food there is instead of asking other people to create and run these experiments for you at their own expense?

    So does having a name like straving2death.

    The GI is a useless tool, it serves no point. For blood pressure, it mostly has to do with a mineral imbalance, a cortisol imbalance, insulin resistance, and obesity.
    Time is passing so quickly. Right now, I feel like complaining to Einstein. Whether time is slow or fast depends on perception. Relativity theory is so romantic. And so sad.

    well if this is true, which i'll assume, then thanks for clearing this up!!! too much noise in society makes ppl like me ask questions like these....

    THANKS VERY MUCH. now having validation (since i personally know nothing about this) i can ignore the noise and go on with my life! =)
