Another fat storing food, is WHOLE WHEAT BREAD, shockingly! Breads, pastas and “comfort foods” all add up to making it very hard to get lean and healthy. Comfort foods are usually those “high-carb” meals we all love, including Apple Pie, Cakes, Muffins, Pastas and Pizza. If you love these foods and don’t want to give them up, as it turns out, you don’t have to.
Problems of losing weight? Unable to get rid of those extra 20 to 30 pounds of belly fat? Stopped eating sweets and started eating healthier? Even exercise which helps loose some of the belly fat but it always comes back? Can’t continue your routine cause life is just too busy? There’s a saying in the fitness industry that, “you can’t exercise your way out of poor nutrition”.
What that means is that NO amount of exercise will help you, if you’re not eating nutrient dense food that your body needs to metabolize, and you always thought that your weight has to do with the carbs you are eating.
The real key is understanding how the body metabolizes these carbohydrates and what causes these cravings in the first place. When carbs are combined with the right amount of other foods, like proteins, it doesn’t raise your blood sugar levels and it doesn’t put your body in fat storing mode.
There are two kinds of carbs; Low carbs, which are your greens, most vegetables and some fruits. High carbs, things like pasta, bread, sweets, even beer and wine. When you eat these foods by themselves, they can cause you to gain weight.
Here’s what a family would eat on a typical day. Pancakes for breakfast, a burger for lunch and chicken for dinner. The problem with these meals is, they don’t have the right ratio of high carbs and low carbs to protein. Let’s take a look at breakfast. Pancakes is essentially all high carbs, that means it is likely to raise my blood sugar levels, putting my body into fat storing mode. Eating high carb meals tends to elevate blood sugar levels basically telling your body to store everything you eat as fat. That can happen at almost every meal.
You have to customize your meals to add the right balance of proteins with some low carbs and the high carbs, to balance out the meal and maintain blood sugar levels. You can still have a burger for lunch and your favourite chicken dish for dinner. By combining the right ratios of carbs and proteins, it causes your body to burn fat rather than store it.
