This score shows that you are still managing your blood sugar levels and reactions to carbs but your risk of developing the associated health problems of carb intolerance is much greater.
There are a couple of things I would like you to consider:
At this point your body is starting to show the first symptoms of intolerance. Carb intolerance is unfortunately a condition that progresses over time unless you change your dietary habits. 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.
I recommend eating a Keto Paleo style diet which promotes the healing of your internal organs, rebalances your body’s chemistry and is effective in managing your body’s blood sugar levels.
Eating Keto Paleo does not have to be hard or intimidating and with the right preparation, it’s actually quite simple. I prefer a very clean and simple style of eating, as it’s the one which brings the most benefits for your long term health.
So how do you get started?
You can easily get started with my comprehensive one week meal plan which includes a shopping list, a food comparison guide and all the macros calculated.
The hard work has already been done for you!
