Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 16, 2008
Wall Street isn't the only place getting a bailout and recovery plan this season. GlycemicEdge.com, a health and wellness nutrition site dedicated to educating consumers on the benefits of a low carb and glycemic friendly lifestyle, announced several new features this week aimed at igniting consumer awareness on the Glycemic Index diet.
The Glycemic Index is a ranking system that looks at the relationship between foods and digestion, identifying how individual foods are broken down into sugars and the role they play in weight loss, energy levels, and hunger pains. The GI diet has gained immense support for responsible lifestyle-based weight loss & nutrition, particularly for those with a history of heart disease or diabetes.
Expanded features launched this week by GlyecmicEdge.com include:
- New 'Fast-Track' Glycemic Index Diet plans - intended to help get users started with the GI Diet plan
- Glycemic Index Forums & User Communities - new user forums and chat areas for issues related to the Glycemic Diet
- Expanded Glycemic Index Chart - the free interactive food guide with Glycemic Index ranking scores for popular foods has been expanded for the new year
Wayne Becker, editor for GlycemicEdge, explained, "We wanted to make it easy for people to get started with the Glycemic Index. The new year and holiday season is intense - everyone's interest in health & weight loss is elevated, but it can be a bit intimidating. We wanted to make the Glycemic Index easier for the average consumer - the first two weeks and learning how these foods interact is absolutely critical. These are learning blocks you'll be able to use the rest of your life."
Related low carb diet offerings featured on the site include the South Beach Diet and glycemic index friendly meal delivery plans from providers like NutriSystem. Users can also now compare multiple diet plans and research costs and features from a single, interactive planning guide.
"Dieters need a responsible, realistic bailout plan for their health just as much as they do their finances. Hype diets and pills are a smokescreen - the Glycemic Index Diet is a lifestyle approach to wellness that is both responsible and proven."
