enrGIsustain is a delicious between-meals formulated snack bar with specially selected low GI ingredients to keep blood sugars levels steady, maintain healthy weight and ensure sustained energy.
Originally intended to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, a low GI (Glycemic Index) eating plan can be adapted as an option for weight loss. Our body performs best when blood glucose is kept relatively constant - maintaining a low GI diet helps provide a slower, more sustained release of sugar into the blood as well as keeping energy levels up and hunger levels at bay. Low GI foods can assist in ensuring healthy blood sugar and thus helping the body to maintain a healthy weight, in conjunction with calorie controlled foods.
Excess weight can lead to pre diabetes and onto diabetes. Most diabetics are of the type 2 category. Diabetes is recognised as the world’s fastest growing chronic condition. There are growing concerns about the escalating health threat diabetes now poses globally. If it is not controlled it can lead to a painful and restricted life for those diagnosed – it can lead to heart attack, stroke and kidney failure. The good thing is most cases of type 2 diabetes can be managed by developing healthy lifestyle habits.
Food and exercise are key players for healthy weight control. It is essential to eat the correct foods and exercise regularly, even as simple as taking a walk for 20 minutes a day. A low GI diet is beneficial as it keeps the spikes in sugar levels balanced, you feel full for longer, cravings are kept at bay and your general mood is more stable.
