Are high glycemic foods bad for me, or only bad for some?

I've been reading articles saying I should never have high-glycemic foods (melons, bananas, potatoes, etc.) Is this true for everyone, or for certain people? What's the deal with high-glycemic foods?

Official Answer

In general it is best to incorporate lower glycemic foods into your diet. However, there are fruits that are higher on the glycemic index that contain lots of beneficial nutrients. I would stick to lower glycemic foods, if you are going to eat higher glycemic fruits, I would make sure you are combining them with a clean source of protein and / or a healthy fat. Protein and fat can help decrease the initial glycemic response and lead to a more sustained release of blood sugar in the body.

So then, if I understand correctly, it would be OK to use bananas or melon in a Nutriblast s long as I included some avocado (a good fat) and nuts, chia seeds, hemp seeds, etc. (protein sources)?
