Of course if something is not mentioned in the above medium to high glycemic index food list does not mean that you can eat it without restrictions.

It always good to check the glycemic index of a particular food before you reaches your stomach (luckily there is plenty of information online) or you can also subscribe to a low glycemic index food delivery service such as Nutrisystem, and have professionals prepare your diet meals for you.

It’s very easy to subscribe, I personally find it fun to assemble your menu online and then have no worries about food for the next month or even longer. Thankfully, those food delivery services are cost effective and available everywhere.

But if you think that you want to try and do it yourself here is a chart of foods to avoid during your weight loss:
