Carbohydrates include foods such as breakfast cereal, pasta, bread, soft drink, grains, biscuits, fruit juice, lollies, potatoes, pizza etc etc. Because carbs induce an insulin response which encourages the body to hold on to fat storage which can lead to insulin resistance, weight gain, inflammation, diabetes and leptin resistance – which leads to more over eating…and the cycle continues! High carbohydrate diets are also associated with mental health issues such as depression and anxiety as well as increased cardiovascular risks. Controlling insulin sensitivity and blood sugar levels to better control your appetite and your hormones meaning you can control a healthy weight range and reduce inflammation in the body. By removing the refined carbs such as grains and wheat you are effectively removing most of the gluten in your diet and as we know, gluten increases intestinal permeability known as leaky gut and causes an imbalance of gut microbiota known as gut dysbiosis which increases autoimmunity and inflammation.
Further its a great way for diabetics to keep blood sugar levels stable, for everyone for overall weight reduction, epilepsy, skin acne, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and other neurological diseases. In addition your mood swings and sugar cravings should abate since fat takes longer to digest and helps to keep your blood sugar levels stable, meaning less cravings to hit the sweet spot.


Also if you suffer adrenal issues and thyroid conditions getting slightly more carb may suit your make up and lead you to better health.
So remove the processed carbs and increase your fats and help your body to repair and dampen inflammation. Since the body does not NEED carbohydrates for energy, we can use fat for energy instead, there are no risks. If you suffer adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues or you are a sprint athlete who needs carbs for explosive fitness, then including healthy carbs is perfectly acceptable and even recommended.
I once ate pasta and bread every day of my life pretty much (yes, I was addicted!) and can say I haven’t touched pasta or bread in over two years now without any issue or complaint. Secondly, when you build your plate focus on a palm worth of protein for women (2 for men) and then get at least a thumb print of full fat  (to start as you transition, working your way up) and then finally good healthy vegetable carbs such as sweet potato. One thing I really miss since going low carb almost three years ago is the freshly made granola at Costco.


Although we were going through so much of it and even would run out while at the shore house (heaven forbid couldn’t find it at their local store!) we rented that I found myself  needing to figure out how to make some that at least compared to the original. This easy to make Buffalo Chicken Cheese dip is sure to be a big HIT with everyone at this week’s game! I know I have recipe roundups for cold and hot cereals but what I mean is granola, like trail mix, that I can toss in a baggie and take on the go. As a matter of fact I started out buying the Palmetto Cheese pictured here at my local Costco and if you would rather buy than make yours I recommend it highly! Here’s how you can  make low-carb tortilla chips  into delicious Doritos easy breezy!
