How does the Glycemic Index Diet work?

ANSWER

Sticking to a low glycemic index diet may help prevent conditions like diabetes and heart disease.

But it's not certain that this diet can help you lose weight any better or faster than a low-fat, low-carb, generally healthy diet.

Overall, the scientific evidence is mixed and unable to show consistent findings.
