Low Glycemic Food List
Metabolism Boosting Foods

This low glycemic food list is full of metabolism boosting foods which will help to keep your blood sugar and insulin levels steady.  Keep this list of low glycemic foods handy to create a faster metabolism.

Metabolism boosting foods are foods with a lower glycemic index because burning fat is really not just about watching your calories - it's just as much about how much sugar or carbohydrates you consume each day.

You actually have to make sure you eat enough calories (the right calories) to create a faster metabolism and you will also have to create the right balance between carbohydrates, fats, and protein.

This low glycemic food list will help you to keep your blood sugar and insulin levels stable which will help to signal fat burning instead of fat storing in your body.
