Did you know?
- Studies show that a low-glycemic diet can work best for long-term weight-loss.
- While the kilo drop isn't usually as sudden as a stricter low-carb diet, it's more sustainable because whole food groups are not removed.
- It's also considered more beneficial in reducing the risk of serious diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
- If overall calorie consumption is still moderate and you burn more calories than you consume, a loss of half-to-one kilo a week is achievable.
