We all wish there was an easy way to determine the foods we can/should eat. There has been a lot of talk about the glycemic index. It would be nice if we could just eat 'low glycemic index' foods (<55), but I don't see myself chowing down any time soon on Snickers (51 / 60g) , peanut M&M's (33 / 30g) or 6-piece Chicken McNuggets (46). After all, do we eat to feed our emotional needs or our nutritional needs?
It certainly can one of the tools we use in determining what to eat but not sure we should disregard the larger nutritional picture.
