About this app

Glycemic Index & Load Diet Assistant is an app that lets you easily browse, search for, and display the Glycemic Index for different foods. The application also helps in keeping a body weight and blood glucose levels measurement logs (including ketone bodies and HbA1c). It also allows to track blood pressure and warns about too high levels of tension. You can also browse Glycemic Load and carbohydrates contents in foods. There's also a calculator of the Glycemic Load in a given serving. Knowing these values and following a low-carb diet like Montignac, Paleo, Atkins, low-GI and similar, helps avoid weight gain or obesity and lower the risk of diabetes, coronary heart and age-related health diseases.

GI means Glycemic Index. It is a number associated with a particular type of food to indicate the food's effect on a person's blood glucose (blood sugar) level. The number typically ranges between 50 and 100, where 100 represents pure glucose, an equivalent amount of pure glucose.

The Glycemic Load (GL) of food is a number that estimates how much the food will raise a person's blood glucose level after eating it. It can be used to apply the Glycemic Index to dieting by connecting the GI number with carbohydrates content in a given serving. It gives an estimation on how much a serving size of food is likely to increase blood-sugar levels.

Net carbs are total carbs minus fiber which is indigestible thus it is considered not to raise blood sugar levels.

BMI is used to assess health risks and body structure but does not take in consideration muscular mass so it can sometimes be inaccurate, for instance in the case of athletes or pregnant women.

Diabetes mellitus (DM), commonly known as diabetes, is a group of metabolic disorders characterized by high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period.

Hyperglycemia (also spelled hyperglycaemia or hyperglycæmia), is a condition in which an excessive amount of glucose circulates in the blood plasma.

Observational studies demonstrate that people who maintain arterial pressures at the low end of these pressure ranges have much better long-term cardiovascular health.

I've begun using this app to help bring my T2D under control. The various screens are visually stunning and indicate excellent programming skill and attention to detail. It make entering data easy. I ran into some problems initially due to another app, contacted the developer who responded almost immediately and worked with me until it was resolved. A First Class Act if there ever was one! I can't recommend it and the developer strongly enough. Truly deserving of encouragement and support! 👍

I paid so I could see the gylcemic load and carb information for foods. But it's been disappointing. The only options are either grams or ounces. That doesn't work for everything. Also the food list is lacking. You don't have tortillas on the list!! It would be so much better if you could scan bar codes!!! I'll stick to Myfitnesspal!!

The following is my opinion based on my experience. The application is not all that useful as it's just a list of foods with GI. But, you can't really tell if that is similar to the food you eat. I didn't check out the weight tracker and food journal functions because I'm currently using MyFitnessPal for these functions. The ads were so annoying and intrusive that I quickly uninstalled the application.

It's not just a list of foods. It also contains weight tracker with rich stats and charts, meal calculator which allows to build a meal regarding a target glycemic load/carbs content. Also there's a food diary which allows to track what you eat by GL/Carbs. It seems you too less time to check the features than writing the review. It's just unfair.
