A Little Bit Of Science

How our bodies process complex carbohydrates

Complex carbohydrates are just glucose molecules hooked together in a long chain…our body breaks it apart into blood sugar.

Our Brain Neurotransmitters also get out of balance when we have chronic high insulin levels…cravings, moodiness, depression, anxiety or fatigue.

What Happens:

Insulin tells your body to eat, particularly sugar or carbohydrates.

If you follow cravings, insulin rewards you with extreme gratification (dopamine).

Insulin escorts the energy from these foods, which is now blood sugar, to wherever it is needed in the body.

It tells the liver to turn any extra carbohydrate into triglycerides, to be stored in the fat cells.

Finally it orders the body to keep the food energy locked inside the fat cells, not burning it for energy, but storing it…increasing triglyceride levels! You gain weight.

The more you satisfy the cravings the more likely you are to develop type 2 diabetes.
