Get Shredded with Lemon Juice and Vinegar
Acidity of a food or meal tends to lower the GI factor of a meal. Adding as little as 20 milliliters of vinegar to a meal is shown to drop the GI factor of a meal tremendously. Lemon juice also appears just as powerful.
Using foods high in acidity tends to pull the brake on stomach emptying and slowing the delivery of food to the small intestine. Slower digestion means a less dramatic rise in blood sugar, no energy slumps, and steady insulin secretion.
So keep adding that vinegar and lemon juice to your side salads and meals. It’s doing more for you than simply adding flavor.
