The glycemic index was created by nutritionists and researchers in the 1980s who were looking for a more accurate way to compare carbohydrates of different food groups relative to the conventional method of simply comparing the total number of carbs.
The glycemic index (GI) is an advanced metric for counting carbs. The glycemic load (GL) is an even better metric. It’s helpful for counting carbs, calories, daily caloric intake, daily calorie intake, eating fewer carbs or calories, lowering your calorie intake, fat loss, and weight loss. Quantifying how many carbs in food, drinks. Also consider macronutrients, macros, fat, protein, metabolism, anabolism, catabolism, synthesis, breakdown, deficit, gluconeogenesis, glycolysis, glycogenolysis.

It looks at things like fructose, galactose, glucose, sugar, glycogen, lactose, calories, kilocalories, monosaccharides disaccharides polysaccharides, starch, and sucrose.
