Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day 
or a Recipe of the Day

There is a Glycemic Index Diet, that is a new way of eating, based upon the Glycemic Index. It is one my favorite lifestyle solutions for your food choices, because it is just a guide to healthy eating, and there are many benefits that will help you with weight control and weight loss. You won’t get skinny quickly, but you will learn how to eat for health!

Remember, in the Glycemic Index, carbohydrate foods are categorized into green light foods that are a go, yellow light foods that signal caution, and red light foods that you should stop or eat sparingly. You can guess that all sugar laden foods, and processed foods fall into the red light category! Surprise!
