Hypertension is called the "silent killer" because about one-third of the people with it DO NOT KNOW that they have it. One in every four adults -- some 50 million people in the USA alone -- have high blood pressure.
High blood pressure often has no warning signs or symptoms.Once it occurs it usually lasts a lifetime. Research has shown that following a healthy eating plan can both reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure and lower an already elevated blood pressure.If uncontrolled, it can leadto heart and kidney disease and stroke.
Not all carbohydrate foods are created equal; in fact they behave quite differently in our bodies. The glycemic index or GI describes this difference by ranking carbohydrates according to their effect on our blood glucose levels. The glycemic index ranks the foods from 0–100 according to the speed at which they affect your blood sugar levels in the 2 or 3 hours after eating.
All the dishes contain at least one low-GI food, which will lower the overall GI count.
