You are one of the decreasing number of rare individuals that can tolerate larger amounts of carbohydrates without direct effects on your blood sugar.
There are a couple of things I would like you to consider:
If you are under 35, you might not show any symptoms of carb intolerance yet, but if you continue eating a diet high in refined sugars, carbs and processed foods this is what happens inside your body.
- You eat sugar/carb
- Your pancreas has to produce large amounts if insulin to lower the amount of sugar in the blood (put it away in the cells)
- Your cell receptors are constantly flooded with insulin as you as constantly eat sugar, so they start getting “numb” to the hormone: they become “insulin resistant” .
- High insulin promotes fat storage
- High insulin will drop your blood sugar causing hypoglycemia
- Hypoglycemia is a big stress on the adrenal glands who need to jump in to help.
- When the muscles can not take any more sugar, the liver has to start storing it.
- After the liver is full, sugar gets stored away as fat!
- A vicious cycle starts that stresses pancreas, adrenals and liver, and promotes fat storage.
See my video below!
Possible consequence of long term high carb/ sugar diets are:
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Cardiovasuclar Disease
- And more….
Did you know that fruits are high in sugar and fructose; the most damaging of all sugars?
Did you know that all grains are high in carbohydrates?
Did you know not all fibers are created equal & we individually react in a different way to them?
So what can you do to prevent this vicious downward spiral of your health and make sure YOU never become carb intolerant?
The first place to start is cleaning up your diet from all refined sugars and carbs. You can replace these with fresh, whole foods (giving preference to fats and proteins) while keeping fruit and starches to a minimum.
