Glyx diet is based on the glycemic index of carbohydrates

The Glyx diet is all about good and bad carbohydrates, which are marked in color in the traffic light system. They are rated based on the glycemic index, a term used in diabetes research. The glycemic index indicates with a number from 1 to 110 how quickly the blood sugar level rises after consuming carbohydrates. Bad carbohydrates therefore cause a rapid increase in blood sugar and the associated high insulin production so that the carbohydrates are processed. In addition, you get hungry again quickly, so you won’t be satiated for long.

    While some diets work great for some, they are not at all ideal for others. What Diet Type Are You?

Insulin, in turn, promotes fat storage in the body. That is why bad carbohydrates are completely taboo on the Glyx diet. These include, for example, sugar, ready meals, white flour products, cakes, sweets and juices. So that no unnecessary fat is stored in the body’s own fat deposits, only good carbohydrates with a correspondingly low glycemic index are allowed.

These include:

  • very high fiber foods like whole grains
  • Whole grain cereals
  • fresh vegetables
  • legumes

The meals are supplemented by foods rich in fat and protein such as olive oil, fish, meat and sausage, nuts and seeds, eggs, yoghurt and cheese. Low-calorie and water-rich fruits and vegetables such as strawberries, asparagus or radishes are also allowed in the Glyx diet. In order to have a positive influence on insulin production, the Glyx diet can even have a glass of wine with the main meal.

How does the Glyx diet work?

At the beginning of the Glyx diet, three days of soup are included to purify the body. This is followed by the Fat Burner Glyx Weeks with a change in diet towards foods with a low glycemic index. To boost fat burning overnight, dinner should consist of foods rich in protein.

In addition to the right selection of good carbohydrates, it is also important to have sufficient fluid intake and daily exercise, 20-30 minutes per day.

Pros and Cons of the Glyx Diet

The Glyx diet approach is easy to understand and easy to implement in everyday life. But not all foods rated as bad carbohydrates are actually bad. Potatoes, pasta, rice or mixed bread are low-fat and filling foods that should not be missing in any diet. You are not responsible for unnecessarily storing fat in the fat deposits. Dishes that consist of several components have a lower glycemic index and are not taken into account when classifying good and bad.

A positive aspect of the Glyx diet is the regular consumption of high-fiber foods as well as fruits and vegetables. This way you stay full longer and supply your body with the necessary amount of important vitamins and minerals every day. It is rather unsuitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women, as the diet can be too one-sided. It is questionable whether the Glyx diet is recommended in the long term and the dreaded yo-yo effect does not occur.
