To avoid temptation, make sure that you always have plenty of healthy snacks available. The glycemic index (GI) indicates a food’s effect on blood sugar. Certain foods cause blood sugar swings. White bread, for example, causes your blood sugar to rise quickly. And what goes up must come down. As your blood sugar descends, it can sometimes fall too low, triggering your appetite.

If you have food cravings, low-GI foods are your best friends. Especially good low-GI choices include beans, lentils, most fruits, and all green, yellow, and orange vegetables. Load up on oranges, apples, or dried fruit. They keep all week and are easy to stash in your desk drawer at work for a quick pick-me-up!

Susan Says:

Think oranges are the ultimate source of vitamin C? Well, think again. Oranges have 97 milligrams in one large piece of fruit but an equal serving of green, red, and yellow peppers have 131, 209, and 341 milligrams of vitamin C, respectively.
