Will overeating good carbs, such as whole grain bread. add extra fat to stomach and abdominal area?
I am not sure about adding fat to the stomach but I do know it can ass wieght over all. I am currently studying some research which states that too many carbs may be responsible for several health issues. I am one who tries to eat only complex carbs and protien. I hope that helps, Scott
Typically good carbohydrates has less starch or sugars and have more fibers.
Even whole grain breads this have some level of starch which will turn in sugar. This should be taken in moderation. If you have an active lifestyle this should not be a problem. If you don't have an active lifestyle it will increase your blood sugar level. In this case the body will try to remove the excess sugar from your blood. A bi-product of this process is the creation of fat on your body. This fat may or may not go to your belly.
I believe the most common reason for belly fat is stress.
Stress creates adrenaline which is suppose to provide more energy to handle an emergency or danger. However, if no physical activity follows, the body has to remove the excess adrenaline. This removal process usually creates belly fat.
Eating good carbohydrates in moderation with an active lifestyle is the best way to keep off excess fat. It will also helps to keep stress levels low. Good sleep habits will also help to reduce stress.
Good carbs are not so good for everyone. A large part of the population has some sort of sensitivity to wheat ( a whole grain), whether they have been diagnosed with it or not.
In my experience, one of the effects of this can be that it is hard to digest, and make it harder for us to digest any other food. This shows up physically on our body, not in actual weight gain or fat, but in size. It is common for such a sensitivity to cause your waist size to go up.
