The glycemic load of the contents of a hamburger or cheeseburger is inconsequential. It's the bun that's the problem. However, The glycemic load is acceptable if you remove the top bun and eat it with a knife and fork. You can also break away hunks of the bun as you eat it. Better yet, skip the bun altogether. You might be suprised at how good it is without all that starch to get in the way of the good stuff.
Skip the fries and soda that often goes with hamburgers. They can kick the glycemic load up to more than 500.
