Low Glycemic Index Foods At Breakfast Reduce Hunger Pangs And Blood Sugar Spikes

March 30, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
A study by Purdue University researchers reports that eating low glycemic index foods –particularly almonds – at breakfast increases feelings of satiety and fullness and helps prevent spikes in blood sugar all morning and after lunch. Foods with a high glycemic index, including many highly processed foods containing carbohydrates, are digested rapidly, resulting in high fluctuations in blood sugar levels and increased hunger pangs later in the day. Low glycemic index foods produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, and are considered healthier. The study focused on the impact of eating almonds at breakfast, finding that the nuts make people feel fuller while lowering blood sugar concentrations.
