Why Low Glycemic Index Foods?!

Insomnia, foggy brain, weakness?!

Headaches, dizziness, joint aches?!

Candida Overgrowth, diabetes, insulin resistance?!

Time to check your daily sugar intake! Unfortunately, sugar does not come only in the commercially processed foods or bakery products. Most of the times, it accompanies us even while indulging in veggies.

I don’t say medium or high glycemic index foods are a complete “no-no”, as every single piece of nutrient coming from nature has its irreplaceable role in reaching that perfect health.

But, as we choose our friends, connections, jobs, and homes, let’s begin a mindful journey and make a step ahead in choosing that “healthier health” today.

There are so many diets, plans, to- do lists, that it becomes harder than hard to not feel overwhelmed.

“-And now, what should I do?! Which plan might be the solution to all of my problems?!”

No reason to worry, going back to that state of balance when it comes to health is easier done than said actually.

Well, first of all, dear, listen to your own body when following any kind of diet: tiredness, dizziness, headaches, thirst during meals or after eating, swallowed fingers, they are nothing but an alarm sign coming from your beloved self, trying to warn you that the food ingested cannot be… digested.

If that’s your case, try to go for a low glycemic index food plan for 21 days: yes, cells need a bit of time to heal, regenerate and renew, but, trust me, it’s totally worth it.

What comes after 21 days?! Stay tuned, and we will travel together through this amazing journey of… healing!
