So i was looking over the Glycemic Index Diet (GI Diet) and it looks pretty simple to follow. As a plus this is benficial as a long term healthy lifestyle and not a crazy diet. It essentially breaks down foods into 3 groups, green, yellow, and red. The green means you can pretty much eat as much of it as you'd like (in moderation of course), yellow means you can have occasionally, and red is the group you want to try to avoid. It keeps you from eating over processed food, and tries to keep you eating as natural as possible.
I was wondering if anyone has done this, or is currently doing this, and what your results have been. Not just in weight loss, but inches lost, overall feeling (are you happier, more energetic?)
I was also curious about what kind of supplements everyone takes, or that they really love. And before you go all crazy, i don't mean diet pills, but vitamins, protein powder, or anything along those lines.
I currently take fish oil and a multivitamin daily. I also ABSOLUTELY LOVE Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy. I drink it every morning, and an hour before i go to the gym (5 days a week) It gives me the boost i need to get through the day/workout, and tastes so good (my favorite is Blue Rasberry) And since i've started drinking it, i've been able to cut out pop and juice, because it gives me the sweetness of something besides water. I also have BSN lean dessert protein, and i usually take it before bed because it consists of casein protein, which is a slow digesting protein, and i've read articles that say it will help keep your metabolism going while you sleep.
Anyways, sorry for the long post, but i'd love to hear what you guys take and really love!
