G.I. Lean Weight Loss Support Firm & Lean 500 g
Sugar cane free. Low in fats. Low in carbohydrates. Drink a G.I. Lean firm & lean milkshake instead of eating a refined carbohydrate snack. Weight management and the glycaemic index. The glycaemic index (G.I.) was developed to measure the speed at which carbohydrate-containing foods are broken down into glucose and absorbed into the bloodstream. Low GI: 1-55. Medium GI: 56-69. High GI: 70-100. Foods that have a high GI value are quickly broken down into glucose and released rapidly into the bloodstream. This causes a rapid rise in blood sugar levels - which briefly provides a burst of energy and satisfies hunger for a short time. However, this fast release of glucose is followed by an equally rapid fall in blood sugar levels, which can leave you feeling tired and hungry soon afterwards. Furthermore, when too much glucose is made available to the body at one time, the excess is converted to fat. Foods that have a low GI value are broken down slowly into glucose for gradual release into the blood stream. This helps to keep blood sugars levels constant, sustaining energy levels, and helping to satisfy hunger for longer. This slow release of glucose over a longer period of time will allow the body to use all of the glucose, leaving none to be stored as fat. In order to steadily reduce excess body fat, it makes sense to follow a healthy eating plan that is based largely on low GI foods. Slim & healthy. Snack replacement: A delicious, satisfying milkshake supplement that is rich in protein, low in fat and low in carbohydrates. It is ideal to use as part of a healthy, balanced weight loss programme. Sweetened with low glycaemic xylitol: Xylitol is a naturally-occurring sweet tasting food substance found in some fibrous fruits and vegetables. It looks and tastes like sugar, but contains only 2.4 calories per gram. It registers at only 8 on the glycaemic index, which causes it to be slowly metabolised in the body - helping to keep energy levels constant, and hunger at bay. Fortified with protein: Protein contains essential amino acids which are the "building blocks" required by the body to maintain and build lean muscle tissue. (Lean muscle mass in the body invigorates the metabolism naturally, helping to burn excess fat). Soy isolate is an excellent source of protein which assists in improving muscle tone. Added vitamins and minerals: With added calcium that strengthen bones, and vitamin C, an essential antioxidant that is needed daily for all-round good health. *Nutrient reference value for individuals 4 years and older. - NRV not established. www.gilean.co.za.
