Good day...

You may have noticed a lot of bad press regarding low carb diets lately. I am hear to tell you that a lot of it is unfounded. While there are some people that may go overboard with the low carb thing I have been personal witness to thousands that have been able to lose wieght and keep it off using the "correct" principles of low carb weight loss.

Low carb does not mean eliminating "all" carbs from your diet. Instead I encourage you to look at the Glycemic Index. Researchers compared a diet rich in carbohydrates with a low glycemic index -- the type that stabilizes blood sugar -- with a conventional low-fat diet that included carbohydrates with a high glycemic index.

Carbohydrates with a low glycemic index, under 50, are absorbed through the small intestine and converted to blood sugar at a much slower rate than high glycemic, resulting in a more stable blood sugar and much less insulin being produced. Studies have shown that those on the low-glycemic diets also achieved better improvement in blood pressure and blood fats, and their resting metabolic rate -- the rate at which the body burns energy or calories at rest -- didn't drop as much as it did for those on the low-fat diet. Click here to check out the Glycemic Index chart.

All natural Steviva Brand Stevia Blend and Steviva Brand Stevia Powder have no Glycemic effect. Try some today.

Thank all of you for your patronage and have an excellent day.
