“Nice and clean user interface, it provides a wealth of nutritional information and addresses the issue of Glycemic Load (an equally important and usually undervalued aspect of the Glycemic Index).”
You want to look good in your bathing suit this summer, so you’re trying to lose weight again. This time it’s a low carb diet. Faithfully, you lug around your diet book and consult it every time you shop or eat. Sure, it’s a bit of a pain but if it works, it’ll be well worth it. Right?
Of course it’s good to actively take care of yourself and congratulations on doing that. The thing is, there’s a much easier way of finding out whether or not you should be eating certain foods. It’s called Glyndex and it makes food evaluation simple and convenient.
Inside Glyndex, you’ll find a vast amount of information like, glycemic index values, glycemic load, kilocalories, kilojoules, protein, carbs, fat and fiber for more than 950 food items.

If you like Glyndex, please just provide us with positive reviews in iTunes whenever an update is published. Positive reviews ensure that the motivation for other updates will be retained!
The stop light ratings are convenient, but it would be much better if they were augmented by the actual GI and GL ratings for each food.
Also, some of the data here is at odds with other sources. Millet is rated double red in this app, but it's recommended for diabetics by the American Diabetes Association. That has me thinking I can't really trust this app.
