Understanding The Role of Carbs (part 2)




it isn’t about NOT having carbs…it’s simply about eating carbs in moderation!

now your body CAN ONLY digest a certain amount of carbs at any given time. if you have a BIG plate mostly being made of rice/pasta/potatoes etc this may contain more carbs than what your body is able to digest, so what it CAN’T
digest it will store as unused energy (eventually storing it as fat) as its thinking “you’re giving me more than what I can handle here. i will digest what I can, but whatever I can’t digest I have no option but to store as unused energy (eventually storing it as fat if this energy doesn't get used up efficiently)

contrastingly if you have a smaller amount of carbs on your plate, this may contribute to LESS than what your body is able to digest. as a result your body’s response is “What you have provided me is perfect as it’s just about enough for me to digest adequately and efficiently”
