Have you noticed how most people gain weight after following a diet? If you want to learn why diets don't work and how to lose weight healthy, this post is for you.

In her article...

We need to treat this organ right and be considerate to it. If we want to be Pancreas’ friend, this is what we should be doing to help it: 1) Learn about the Glycemic Index (GI) and Glycemic Load (GL) of food and limit the amount of highly glycemic food we ingest.
