Gummy Bears and Diet

Not permitted on low carb diets, sweets, candy and chocolate (like Gummy Bears) are typically calorie-dense foods with no dietary fiber and little or no nutrition. Moreover, some candy is high in refined carb sugars and high on the Glycemic Index, which means it can cause a rapid rise in blood-glucose levels, leading to excessive insulin production and a sudden drop in blood sugar. The longer-term health effects of eating high-GI foods and consequent unstable blood sugar levels, include periodic hyperglycemia, hyperinsulimia, obesity and other symptoms, known collectively as insulin resistance syndrome. Increased risk of diabetes is another possibility. See also Diabesity and Insulin Resistance. Bottom line: if you want to lose weight and stay healthy, keep your intake of refined sugary carbs in foods like Gummy Bears, to a sensible minimum.
