The human body cannot make omega-3 fatty acids from scratch and so they must be provided in the diet. These essential fats are very important parts of cell membranes and hormones that affect the circulatory system. These fats have been shown to help in the prevention of heart disease and strokes, and in the control of inflammatory conditions such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. They have even been shown to protect against some cancers. The weight reduced through a low GI diet approach is safe, and you won’t find yourself needing to starve on just carrots and lettuce! The glycemic index ranks the foods from 0–100 according to the speed at which they effect your blood sugar levels in the 2 or 3 hours after eating. Following the strict regime of diet our body is sometimes deprived of essential vitamins and elements. it was difficult but very pleasant experience finding the recipes with low Gi index and yet rich in omega 3.
