Contrary to popular belief, people who are overweight eat more food than they burn because of a hormonal problem, NOT because they are lazy and glutinous! The main hormone involved is insulin, which is too high in overweight people.
You may know that insulin is responsible for keeping our blood sugar (glucose) under control. You may also know that carb-rich foods break down to glucose. So when you eat carb-rich food, your insulin goes up in response.
The other main role of insulin is to make your body store fat. The higher your insulin, the more fat you store. The fact that carbs put insulin up is the main reason they will make you gain weight.
That’s why if want to lose weight, going low carb is a no-brainer.
Apart from losing body fat, when you go low carb, you will notice:
- Less hunger
- More energy
- Reduced food cravings
- Better mental clarity
- Better skin
