1. Combine protein with carbohydrate.
2. Graze rather than gorge.
3. Include foods with high levels of soluble fibre, found in oats and chia seeds, as well as aubergine.
4. Another way to increase soluble fibre is to take three capsules of Carbo-Slow Fibre (glucomannan fibre), as this fills you up
5. Add a squeeze of lemon or lime (citric acid) to a meal to slow down gastric emptying, which lowers the GL. So too does adding vinegar to a salad or having a drizzle of balsamic vinegar on your vegetables.
