Has anyone had experience using the Glycemic Index in planning their meals and so forth? If so could you post your experiences good or bad? I am interested in learning more.

I tried it at my sister's urging. While I lost weight and my blood glucose stabilized more quickly, I found that it was difficult for me to maintain due to my work schedule and the fact that I live in a remote rural community that seldom has a varied selection of fruits and veggies at the local market. I have to make a 220 mile round trip to get to a "Supermarket" type grocery store where I can get fresh foods.

All in all though, it worked well for me as long as I maintained the diet.
