COME ON GIRLS AND BOYS YOU ALL WANT TO KNOW HOW TO AVOID FAT STORAGE RIGHT?
How to Avoid Fat Storage...
Why certain foods make us put on weight and how to use this knowledge to lose fat and keep it off for good!
Though most popular diets emphasise low-fat, high carbohydrate foods, virtually all of them fail to make any distinction between the two types of carbohydrates: low glycemic and high glycemic.Low glycemic carbohydrates (such as slow cooked oatmeal, apples and beans) are absorbed slowly and do not cause a rapid rise in blood sugar.High glycemic carbohydrates (such as rice cakes and breakfast cereals) are quickly absorbed and cause a rapid rise in blood sugar.
This information is important because any rise in blood sugar causes an insulin reaction (i.e. a large burst of insulin into the bloodstream). Insulin, which is a “storage” hormone, signals the body to remove excess glucose (blood sugar) from the blood and store it first in muscle cells. Any excess is converted to fat (triglycerides) for storage in adipose (fat) cells in your chin, upper arms, belly, hips, buttocks, thighs and elsewhere.
Therefore, eating high-glycemic foods causes your body to store excess carbohydrates as fat and not use them for energy. That’s why most low fat, high carbohydrate diets fail – even though calories may be kept to an uncomfortable minimum.
