Carb Lover Tips

Are you a carb-o-holic? Do you just LOVE carbs? I mean who doesn’t LOVE carbs? They’re the easiest ‘grab and go’ food, they’re delicious and theyburpee pull up‘re everywhere. You’re likely getting mixed messages about carbs. Should you eat them? Avoid them? What’s the perfect combination of carbs? When is the best time to eat carbs? Can you actually eat carbs and get lean?

Here are three tips to help you eat carbs and manage your waist line:

Avoid Insulin Spikes

This is how your body works: eat carbs = get an insulin spike. Why is this bad? Well, it FORCES your body into a fat storing environment. You can NEVER lose fat when you have insulin in your bloodstream. Remarkably, as soon as simple carbohydrates hit your mouth, digestion begins and you’ll start storing body fat. This is why you NEVER want to eat carbs exclusively.

The solution? Combine your carb intake with protein and a fibrous vegetable to slow down absorption and moderate the insulin release in your body. This will allow your body to use those carbohydrates as energy before they’re shuttled away into storage for a rainy day.

The cool thing is, you can actually INTENTIONALLY cheat on carb based food when you use a carb cycling strategy that my friend Shaun Hadsall can show you here.

If your energy intake is high and your energy output is low (face it, we eat too much and go sit on the couch on occasion) your body will over fill your muscle and liver storage and your body will start to store unused energy as fat. There are three simple stages of carb usage and if you understand how this works you can eat carbs and ‘beat the system’ so that you don’t store fat.

Here’s how the body utilizes carbohydrates:
First of all, carbs can be burned as immediate energy.

Second, your body stores carbs as gylcogen in the muscle and liver as to be used as an energy source later.

Lastly, when your muscles and liver are ‘full’, then the ‘spill over’ energy is stored as fat.

This ‘spill over’ effect with carbohydrates happens far too much. There’s a simple proprietary nutrition protocol that helps you STOP stage 3 carb-based fat spillover, you can read about it here.

STOP Eating Carbs at the Wrong TimeIntermittent Fasting - clock

95% of folks gain weight back after a weight loss program due to eating carbs at the wrong time. There are good, better and best times to eat carbs:

GOOD: When you metabolism is highest, this is when you want to eat carbs. For the majority of folks, this is first thing in the morning. Insulin sensitivity is peaking at this time of day. Your energy tank is lowest due to fasting over night so there will be minimal fat storage. This works best when you exercise first thing in the morning.

BETTER: A better time to consume carbs is a couple of hours before you exercise to make sure that the carbs consumed is burned off during your workout. These carbs will increase workout performance through enhanced energy; this will help you burn off more fat and calories through the increased intensity of the workout.

BEST: There is a window of opportunity right AFTER your workout and this is the BEST time to consume carbs. Your muscles act like a sponge to soak up the energy from your favorite carbs.

So timing your carb intake will allow you to enjoy them without storing them as fat.

Simply put, if you eat carbs at the wrong times, you’ll STORE fat, but if you eat carbs with the right foods at the right times, you’ll BURN fat.
