In this video, you’ll discover the carbs
that are worse than sugar.
Hi ladies and gentlemen.
I’m Dr. Zyrowski and welcome back to the

In this video, we’re talking about carbs
are worse than sugar.
This is an important topic because a lot of
people are trying to live a healthy lifestyle,
lose some weight and they go and take the
sugar out of their diet but one of the things
they do is they leave the carbs that are absolutely
destroying everything for them.
It’s stopping their momentum.
It’s stopping them from losing weight.
It’s stopping them from achieving their
goals.
So what we’re going to talk about in this
video is these different foods and how they
impact what’s called the glycemic index.
So basically, when we look at this glycemic
index, what it is is basically this index
that breaks down how carbohydrate rich foods
actually affect our blood sugar.
So, there’s going to be low glycemic foods
which are going to be 0 – 55, there’s going
to be moderate that are 56 – 69, and then
high which are 70+.
Now, when we look at the moderate and high
glycemic foods, those are the ones that we
actually want to stay away from.
We want to make sure we are staying away from
those foods so that we can actually decrease
inflammation, lose weight and of course achieve
our health goals.
Now what I’ll do too, it’s important to
know this because I’ll put in the description
below here a link to a full profile of not
only high glycemic index foods but low glycemic
index foods so you can go make sure you’re
making the best choices.
Now when we look at, for instance sucrose,
and this is also known as table sugar, it’s
at 65.
So if we take the sucrose from our diet and
we leave these carbohydrate rich foods, essentially
we’re going to have a bit of a problem.
I’ll tell you why.
It’s because when we look at things like
corn chips, they have a glycemic index of
105.
Now, many of these are going to be topics
of conversation here but whether it’s corn
chips or potato chips, all these different
chips are going to raise your blood sugar
super high.
So we have to make sure that we’re staying
away from them.
Many times when we go to restaurants for instance
and we grab a healthier option on the menu
but yet it still comes with a bag of chips
or a big plate of chips.
So we have to watch out for that.
Stay away from the different chips out there.
Next here, is dates.
Now I put this on here and this is important
because many people are eating high sugar
fruits or high glycemic index fruits that
are absolutely stopping them from achieving
their goals.
But dates for instance, it’s at 103.
We want to stay away from the high glycemic
index fruits and stick to fruits like blueberries,
strawberries and some of these fruits that
are not going to cause huge blood sugar swings
for us.
Next here is rice, milk and rice crackers,
pretty much anything rice you’re going to
want to stay away from because it has a really
high glycemic index.
A lot of people will go and even get those
rice cakes.
You know those rice wafers that people turn
to when they decide that they want to start
eating healthier.
Well, those actually are huge in the glycemic
index scale as well.
Now when we look at instant rice for instance,
that is way worse.
It’s even higher than.
It’s 100 plus on the glycemic index scale.
So we want to make sure we’re staying away
from rice in general and switch to better
options.
For instance, almond flour crackers have a
glycemic index that’s somewhere between
1 and 5.
So if we make better options, go right to
those better options in the way of crackers,
almond flour anything is always a better option
there.
Next here is Corn Flakes.
So a lot of people are eating really garbage
breakfast foods.
Whether it’s Corn Flakes that have a glycemic
index of 81 or Golden Grahams which have a
glycemic index of around 105, we have to make
sure that we’re not only staying away from
those ourselves, but we’re not giving it
to our kids.
Many people are want to look better; they
want to lose weight.
They take that stuff out of their diet, but
then they give it to the kids.
Totally a bad idea.
You want to just remove it from the house
and then move forward like that.
Next here on our list is potatoes.
So the potato is also a thing that a lot of
people eat and it’s, once again potato chips
and all these other things that come from
potatoes, like french fries; we want to make
sure that we’re staying away from potato
because it has a glycemic index of 78.
As a matter of fact, when we look at instant
potatoes, just like instant rice, it’s way
high up there on the scale as well.
What’s really interesting about potatoes
is when we look at french fries for instance
it actually has a lower glycemic index simply
because it has a fat attached to it.
And when we have a fat attached to it, it
essentially buffers the blood sugar and it
helps keep the blood sugar a little bit lower.
So, you’ll find that french fries, I don’t
recommend that you go to a restaurant and
get french fries, actually have a lower glycemic
index.
Next here is white bread.
White bread is 75 on the glycemic index scale
and you’re not doing yourself any favors
by switching to the whole wheat really because
that’s about a 72 on the scale.
If you’re looking for better options when
it comes to bread, sourdough bread is going
to be right around 48 or even going to an
Ezekiel bread which is right around 38.
So those are better options in the way of
bread there.
And then last, instant oats.
These are also really bad and have a glycemic
index of 79.
We have to make sure that were staying away
from those.
A lot of the breakfast foods are bad.
Many people are waking up and they’re having
instant oats, they’re having cereal, they’re
having bagels.
Stay away from all that stuff.
I recommend intermittent fasting.
And of course your kids, you’re probably
not trying to push intermittent fasting with
your kids.
I know that we don’t.
One of the things that we’ll do is we’ll
just use things like eggs, we’ll use no
sugar yogourt, we’ll just use better options
for breakfast foods.
And so stay away from these different foods
here because they are high on the glycemic
index scale and it’s not just these.
These are just topics of conversation as mentioned.
And so make sure you’re staying away from
high glycemic index foods.
If you want to decrease inflammation, if you
want to reverse a health condition, if you
want to lose weight or you just want to get
healthier in general, stay away from those.
Be sure to give this video a thumbs up and
share it with your friends so that they can
understand this and make sure that they’re
avoiding these foods as well.
