3 Tits to eat carbs without stoking much fat

#1 Avoid high peaks of insulin

Every time you eat carbohydrates with a high glycemic index, there is a high amount of sugar that comes in your blood. When you have a high blood sugar your survival is at stake, so your body releases a large amount of insulin to lower your rates as soon as possible.

Therefore, you should never eat sugar outside dining. You can eat your carbs with a source of fat, protein or fibrous vegetables that will slow their digestion and regulate the release of sugar into your bloodstream. Also, you can eat only low glycemic foods, which are broken down and digested slowly.

By doing this you will enjoy the most of your carbohydrates as an energy source and will limit fat storage.

#2 Avoid carbs that are processed as fat

When your body energy is excess and your glycogen stores are (muscles and liver) are full, the surplus carbohydrates you eat is turned into fat. The ideal time to consume your carbs is in the morning and around your workouts.
