If that can be believed.

I was browsing medical sites and nutrition sites for information for the glycemic indexes for different foods to help me make better eating choices. One health site shows one set of numbers, another site shows another set of numbers, and so on. And when looking at the information offered at an alleged 'paleo' expert's site, they argue that glycemic index doesn't really provide good indicators for making choices, because, it's the glycemic load a particular food will produce when combined with other foods on the dinner plate that will ultimately matter.
Then you have to factor in how foods are prepared (steamed, boiled, baked, fried, or raw) will change a food's particular glycemic index or glycemic load number and totally screw up the healthy, balanced meal you just planned.

There's just too much conflicting information and far, far too much math involved in all of this and the mathematics are causing my blood pressure and, therefore, my blood sugar levels to stay elevated. That's right, I'm blaming numbers. Maybe I need to cut all the numbers out of my life. It certainly would save me time. Drat you education system for teaching me to count, how to add, how to multiply, how to subtract, and divide. I think I was happier when I didn't now about numbers.
Maybe I just need to pray more.
