Hey, Calories = Fat. GI? I would say more related to blood sugar level and carbohydrates than calories. Just some ideas to share with you on GI/ GL.
GI, Glycemic Index, refers to the measurement of the effect of carbohydrate-rich food on the rises of blood sugar level over hours after consumption (which means to measure the rates of rising blood sugar level over 2 -3 hours after eating certain carb-rich food).
High GI food does not mean high calories, but excessive daily intake of high GI food will lead to increases of blood sugar level, and thus, affects our health which leads to high risk of some cardiovascular disease, fatty liver, and might lead to weight gain (as extra energy from extra glucose is a lot available to be used, so our body will conserve those calories (fat) instead, and hence, contributes to weight gain).read more

But too much cholesterol in the blood causes blood vessels to become narrowed with fatty deposits called plaques. This leads to a major risk for cardiovascular disease (heart and blood vessels diseases) and causes stroke.read more
