All carbohydrates are not created equal. The glycemic index is a ranking given to carbohydrate foods based on how quickly they are digested and how quickly they raise blood glucase levels. Low-glycemic index carbohydrates tend to make alone sugar rise more slowly and keep you feeling full longer.
These foods, which tend to be higher in soluble fibre, include lentils, beans, some fruits, pumpernickel bread, barley and bulgur. Higher glycemic index foods, which include potatoes, sugar, white beans and some refined cereals, can leave you feeling hungry and wanting more. When choosing carbohydrates, you may want to try the lower glycemic index variety.
