Good Carbs Vs. Bad Carbs

The infographic offers information about the glycemic load and the glycemic index. Foods with low GI are beneficial because they cause a moderate and gradual rise in blood glucose levels. Low GI foods put less strain on the pancreas and facilitate weight loss. Foods with high GI are usually loaded with preservatives, flavorings, and other chemicals. Refined, prepackaged, and processed foods have a high glycemic index value. Most alcohols are low in carbohydrates but contain empty calories. Use in moderation and avoid foods such as cornflakes, dates, and instant mashed potatoes, which have high GI.
