Starchy Carb Fact #1: You’ll STOP Storing Starchy Carbs As Fat
Believe it or not, your body runs on glucose. Everything you eat is converted to glucose and is transported around your body via your blood supply. Every cell in your body, especially your brain, needs glucose.
Glucose will suppress your hunger hormone (ghrelin) to help you control your appetite and those nasty late night cravings.
And guess what? Your favourite high carb foods like potatoes will supply the glucose you need.
This stimulates a VERY important metabolic process called “glycolysis”.
Without enough energy your metabolism will slow down and eventually block your body’s fat loss.
Now I know this sounds like the exact OPPOSITE of what you’ll normally hear, but this is how starches help you burn more fat and calories every time you eat and exercise.
In other words, by strategically eating MORE “starchy” carbs you’ll burn them more efficiently as a fuel source and STOP storing them as fat on your body.
You just have to make sure you’re doing it RIGHT.
We’ll cover how to use starchy carbs in my October workshop.
