Does anyone know where to find a list of foods, either organized by glycemic index/load or by food category but also listing the glycemic index and load numbers? I'd love to get ahold of a good printable list of low glycemic foods that I can use when shopping and meal planning. I don't mind buying one either if it's good. I've been searching online and just haven't found one that has what I'm looking for and is easily printable. I was diagnosed recently and am trying to gather good resources to support my efforts to lower my blood sugar and lose weight. Thank you!

I feel for you. Something that has helped me is taking time at the grocery store and going isle by isle. I go through the foods and look at carbs/calories/ protein/etc. Then I note things that will work for my health. You obviously can't do the whole store at once, but bit by bit you become more familiar with good food choices.

Beef, chicken, pork, fish. Butter, olive oil, coconut oil, broccoli, green beans, cauliflower, onions, celery, carrots, peppers, cheese, sour cream, berries, avocados, heavy cream, eggs, bacon, sausage.
The thing you want to remember is no sugar, no bread, no pasta. There are lots of information on line about low carb, and ketogenic diets. Just google it.
