Any recomendations for low BG impacting or low glycemic index cereals? I was analyzing my BGs with my Endo today, and I admitedly have an issue post breakfast. I am typically rushed to get out of the house and a bowl of cereal is often all I have time for. I’ve been eating Cheerios thinking they weren’t all bad because, relative to other cereals, the carb count’s not so high. But my Endo said no, it’s actually a very high GI food. She recomended Ezekiel 4:9. I bought some and will try it, but it’s $5 for a small box! I’ve been searching the web for glycemic index ratings to compare Cheerios to Kashi Go Lean and to this Ezekiel 4:9, but it’s tough to find consistency. Cheerios seems to be rated anywhere from 68 to 75. Kashi Go Lean seems to be around 60 and Ezekiel around 35. I wonder if my insurance will cover cereal.
Anyway, it got me thinking about low impact cereals. Anyone have suggestions or know of good research in this area?
