Pumpkin scares some people off because it has a high glycemic index of 75. Your immediate reaction may be to boycott it because it could cause a marked increase in your blood sugar, ultimately leading to fat storage. However, pumpkin has a low glycemic load of 3 because of its low carbohydrate content. This means pumpkin has a smaller impact on your blood sugar levels than its GI suggests, so don't hesitate to include this nutrient-dense vegetable into your diet.
