“Aggressive” basically means consider the glycemic index.
The Glycemic Index is an attempt to measure how fast food will break down into sugar and hit the blood stream, thus necessitating an insulin response.
Aggressive foods, like simple sugars and simple carbohydrates, quickly turn to blood glucose, hit the blood sugar, and provoke an immediate insulin response.
So what slows down a food’s digestion and makes it less AGGRESSIVE?
You guessed it. Fat and fiber.
And what are the least aggressive foods for your calorie buck?
- Nonstarchy vegetables.
- Good fats
And worst would be starchy carbs and sugars.
