HEALTH BENEFITS OF GOBITES
GoBites has worked with a team of nutritionists to offer you a unique combination of foods. Each GoBite contains vital nutrients and can satisfy your cravings, re-energize your body and help you maintain a healthy weight.
When you eat, your body converts that food into energy. Carbohydrates are converted into glucose which is then released into the bloodstream to power your body. Certain carbohydrates release glucose gradually into the bloodstream, while other carbs release glucose very quickly. These “slow-releasing” foods keep your blood sugar stable and can have tremendous health benefits. The graph below illustrates how glucose is released into your bloodstream when you eat a “fast-releasing” food versus a “slow-releasing” food.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend making two whole food, nutrient-dense snacks a part of a healthy eating plan.
Eating "slow-releasing" foods keeps your blood sugar levels stable. Maintaining stable blood sugar levels gives you longer lasting energy and helps you avoid the feelings of highs and lows you experience when you eat processed foods. GoBites are filled with foods that help create this slow release of energy into your body.
Foods with good fats, fiber and protein are digested and processed by your body slowly. They help keep you fuller, longer, which helps decrease cravings and "spoils" your appetite at meals. A spoiled appetite is a good thing. It keeps you from reaching for the bread and butter at the dinner table, over-eating and giving into temptation.
By comparison, processed foods filled with simple carbohydrates and lots of additives and preservatives will wreak havoc on your blood sugar and leave you feeling tired and hungry.
