What do Glycemic Index (GI) and Glycemic Load (GL) mean?

Opposite to good carbohydrate (= "Slow Carbs”), bad carbohydrates – in neo-German also known as “Fast Carbs“ – cause the blood sugar level to rise quickly.
The faster – and thus the higher concentrated – carbohydrates are, the more insulin our body will produce in order to lower the blood sugar level.

As a consequence thereof, the blood sugar level will drop below normal, the appetite – in particular for sweets – will increase, and fat burning will be restricted during this «insulin fattening».

Therefore, GI and GL were invented, to facilitate distinction between «bad» and «good» carbohydrates.
