GI means Glycemic Index. It is a number associated with a particular type of food to indicate the food's effect on a person's blood glucose (blood sugar) level. The number typically ranges between 50 and 100, where 100 represents pure glucose, an equivalent amount of pure glucose.

The Glycemic Load (GL) of food is a number that estimates how much the food will raise a person's blood glucose level after eating it. It can be used to apply the Glycemic Index to dieting by connecting the GI number with carbohydrates content in a given serving. It gives an estimation on how much a serving size of food is likely to increase blood-sugar levels.

Net carbs are total carbs minus fiber which is indigestible thus it is considered not to raise blood sugar levels.

Diabetes mellitus, commonly known as diabetes, is a group of metabolic disorders characterized by high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period.

Hyperglycemia (also spelled hyperglycaemia or hyperglycæmia), is a condition in which an excessive amount of glucose circulates in the blood plasma.

Observational studies demonstrate that people who maintain arterial pressures at the low end of these pressure ranges have much better long-term cardiovascular health.

Excellent Resource

GI/GL it is so important to have this information for meal planning, shopping and eating. If the food is not in the app you are directed to a University site that will provide it for you/-or research yourself and enter data, very easy to use. This app is affordable for what you receive it is an excellent value and well worth the purchase. Great work developer for helping people that truly need this support! 😊👍 I LOVE THIS AP!

Nope. To get all the features they've implied come free you gotta pay $4.00 for it.

I don't know about you, but I hate being manipulated, and this app has one sneaky, bait and switch app-store description.

Allow me to preface the following with this: I don't mind paying for a good/better app. Do it all the time. But, the developer for this thing must be a former E.A. smartphone game developer because they're charging TWO separate $2 in-app purchases for features they've conveniently implied come with the free one; They buried the required purchase part after the main first paragraph where it implies the features come free. You gotta be really paying attention to catch it.

Now, I admit that $4 isn't braking the bank, especially for a good app. This app might be good after you've gone through the process of buying all the features needed, but I ain't rewarding them for their deceptive practices.

Wanted to like it.

I just downloaded and spent almost an hour making an effort to download my minimal breakfast and lunch knowing nothing about GL but wanting to learn.

I easily found that an egg has no GL. The problem started when I tried to find my fresh veggie juice. I found juice of beets but nothing about celery, cucumber, parsley which I juice regularly for inflammation. Ok, that’s an unusual request, I get it, so I moved on to my salad and typed in romaine....nothing. So I typed in lettuce and found only green leaf. Ok, so maybe they’re similar. I’ll choose that. Wait I can’t figure out my portion in cups? The only option is grams.....who uses grams in America? I don’t even want to consider trying to find the ingredients for my homemade salad dressing.

I’m out!
