C - List of Low Glycemic Index

Chocolate - good news chocolate lovers. Most of the chocolate has very low glycemic index even though the chocolate is high in sugar, it won't trigger a surge to your blood glucose. However, some of the chocolates especially the white or the milk are not good for your hips :(
  • Dark 50g = 23 best and beneficial to your health especially if it has 70% or more of cocoa in it. Eat a little everyday without feeling guilty.
