The Truth about Carbohydrates
For the longest time people treated "carbs" as taboo like somehow all of our weight problems are caused by excess carbs and while too many carbohydrates can have a negative impact on your health not all carbs are created the same. There are some carbs that are absorbed in your bloodstream right away and while that might sound really good when these carbs enter the bloodstream it will create a spike in your blood glucose levels. Not long after the glucose rises it will come crashing down and this will make a person feel weak and hungry at the same time. Since the glucose levels crash so fast the sugar is converted into fat instead of being burned off like other sugars.
There slow carbs that are absorbed slowly in the bloodstream. Since the sugars are absorbed slowly your body will get a consistent supply of energy which helps you feel full longer. Since you feel full you are less likely to overeat.

If you eat simple carbs then you are going to feel hungry all the time and people are hungry tend to be cranky. These hunger induced emotions will have a profound impact on your eating habits instead of waiting to eat a proper meal you will try to snack all the time and these snacks are usually not healthy. Since you are eating large quantities of processed foods you will not have the energy you need to exercise or burn off all of the extra calories so you gain weight.
