Dietary Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load in Health and Exercise explores the significance of dietary glycemic index (GI) and glycemic load (GL) in nutrition for health and exercise performance. The DVD discusses the affect of (GI) and (GL) on both the capacity of an individual to engage in endurance and the exerciser's subsequent performance in a specific endurance activity. The DVD also looks at the possible relationship between disease (health) and GI.
Among the topics covered:
â€¢ The glycemic index of foods
â€¢ Glycemic index and disease
â€¢ Glycemic index (GI), glycemic load (GL), and endurance exercise performance
â€¢ Pre-exercise GI meal vs. endurance performance and capacity
