The body has three storage depots to use as fuel:
- Carbohydrates from food
- Protein that is converted to glucose in the liver and used for energy
- Stored body fat and ketones
In a regular high carb
diet, carbohydrates are the main source of fuel for the body.
A VICIOUS CYCLE
High Carb Intake = High Glucose
In The Blood = High Insulin |
Body Fat Stores
Eventually this leads to metabolic syndrome, a set of conditions caused by insulin resistance, which includes obesity, fatty liver, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and other metabolic issues.
this carb cycle may not occur in everyone, for many who are obese, have a
sensitivity to carbs, or who do not expend the required amount of stored
energy, this is often the case and the main culprit behind obesity.
