INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW

"Low glycemic index eating" has become a very popular approach for improving one's diet. Moreover, while using this approach can be helpful, it can also be misleading. Just because a food has a low GI doesn't mean that it is always the better choice. For example, watermelon has a GI of 72, and a Snickers candy bar has a GI of 55. Which is the better choice? For the majority of the population who get more than enough calories, the watermelon is a better choice even though it has a higher GI. In addition, there are many other issues that can cause discrepancies in the GI of a food or meal. Consequently, it is important for nutrition professionals to become familiar with GI eating concepts. This self-directed accredited learning program will review GI nomenclature, show discrepancies of the GI, and more importantly, explore evidence based approaches for weight, diabetic, and heart healthy management.

This learning program is a level 2 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) program approved for 14 continuing professional education units (CPEUs). That means that the reader has general knowledge of literature and professional practice in the area covered. The focus of the program is to enhance knowledge and application.
To get the most benefit from this program, we suggest you adhere to the following four steps:
Step 1: Review the objectives for the learning program.
Step 2: Study each chapter. As you read, think of patients from your own practice who fit the situation described.
Step 3: Assess what you have learned by completing the self-assessment instrument at the end of this learning program.
Step 4: Compare your answers to the answer key that has been provided. If you score at least 80% correct, you are ready to transfer your answers to the CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION REPORTING FORM. If you scored less than 80% correct, re-read this learning program until you score at least 80% correct.
