The popularity of the low-carb approach led to the GI Diet.
One of the more popular diets in the last few years, the G.I. Diet rode in on the coattails of the carb craze. G.I. Diet concentrates on the Glycemic Index, which is how quickly the body digests foods to produce glucose. G.I. Diet is a healthy combination of fat, complex carbs and protein.
The Glycemic Index gives a rating to each food, from 0-100. You want to avoid foods with a high index rating, as those are digested quickly and leave you feeling unsatisfied following a meal or snack.

You should choose mostly low G.I. foods ("green light foods"), with an index less than 55. These include fish, sweet potatoes, al dente pasta, skim milk and kidney or baked beans.
You can consume foods from the Medium G.I. ("yellow light foods") list in moderation. These have an index of 56-69 and include Basmati rice, whole wheat bread, new potatoes and popcorn.
Rarely, if ever, should you eat High G.I. foods ("red light foods"), which index 70 or more. These include processed foods and white bread, baked white potatoes, instant rice and french fries.
The low G.I. food will take more time to digest, allowing your body to feel satisfied much longer between meals. Leaving you less likely to grab convenient snacks in between or eating unhealthy portions at mealtime. Unlike a lot of eating plans, the G.I. diet there really offers a wide variety of choices for planning balanced, delicious meals.EXERCISE
