We are very excited at Slim Secrets to announce that Boost Juice have chosen our healthy snack bars (from a large selection) to sell in many of their outlets after doing a successful trial. I will let you know when they will be available from Boost.
I also want to fill you in on a little secret from research news (in technical language) about a low GI diet and diabetes;
RESEARCH NEWSWhole grains and a low-glycemic index diet may reduce systemic inflammation among women with type 2 diabetes, according to a study published in the February 2006 issue of Diabetes Care. Researchers examined whether intakes of whole grains and dietary fiber were associated with inflammatory indicators among 902 diabetic women in the Nurses’ Health Study. After adjustment for age, BMI, lifestyle and dietary differences, intakes of whole grains and bran were both associated with significantly decreasing trends of C-reactive protein (CRP) and tumor necrosis factor (TNF-R2)—markers of blood vessel inflammation. Concentrations of CRP and TNF-R2 were 18% and 8% lower in the highest quintile of cereal fiber as compared with the lowest quintile. Dietary glycemic index was positively associated with CRP and TNF-R2 levels. The concentrations of CRP and TNF-R2 were 32% and 11% higher, respectively, in the highest quintile of dietary glycemic index as compared with the lowest quintile.
