THE LOWDOWN ON CARBS, CRAVINGS FIBER & REPLACING LOST NUTRIENTS.
3 quick tips for you today
How can you stop weight gain from carbs. The key to weight loss is not in eating less but rather what you put on your plate. Refined carbohydrates like sugar and bread will spike blood-sugar fast, causing insulin activation. This causes fat storage for future use as fuel!
Luckily there are a few things you can do to prevent this happening
1 – Eat More Fiber
Fibre helps to slow down the body’s absorption of carbohydrates, which in turn prevents blood-sugar spikes.
Eat plenty of green and leafy veg to up your fibre intake.
This will help you to stop craving carbs.
2 – Replace Lost Nutrients
Sugar and carbs deplete your body of certain key nutrients like potassium, zinc and magnesium.
Eating foods rich in these micronutrients will help to offset the damage caused by sugar and carbs. This damage is what causes cravings, especially for carbs.
If you eat good quality food with a decent amount of nutrients you will start to gain control over cravings.
Think nourishing foods such as homemade chicken soup to beat carb craving cycles
Avoid processed food as much as possible
3 – Add Cinnamon To Your Food
Cinnamon helps the body to use insulin more effectively, as well as slowing down the rate at which carbohydrates are absorbed. This results in steadier blood-sugar levels overall.
You can add cinnamon to food or even shake it onto your morning coffee. It’s a delicious addition, especially around the festive end of the year.
So there you have it!
By following these 3 simple tips you can help your body to handle carbs better and prevent carb cravings and more weight gain.
Nourishing your body helps you to move in the right direction towards successful weight loss. Even after 40
