High Calorie Low GI Food
If you are diabetic, it is very important to have food which would not spike your blood glucose levels. There are many who lose their weight due to diabetes and for them it is ideal to have food which would provide more calories, good micronutrients and is of low GI (Glycemic Index). I am on intermittent fasting for about a year now and I find food with high calories and low GI very useful as my eating window is low and I am able eat sufficient calories so that I can maintain my ideal weight.
