People often make some version of the following statement: “if I just ate better, I’d be in amazing shape!” Let us revise that just a bit for you and challenge you to wonder what life would be like without a refined carb filled diet.
It stands to reason that reducing your carb intake (both refined and processed) would lead to a healthier, fitter you, considering that carbs are directly related to weight gain.
Logic isn’t always correct…so is it fact or is it fiction? Even if there is truth to it, is it really that big of a deal and even worth it?
Let’s break down what really happens to your body when you ditch refined carbs:
Impact #1: You MELT AWAY FAT
When your body does not have available calories to burn, it begins to burn stored fat for energy. This is what happens when we cut out the simple carbs. Simply put, your clothes are gonna start fitting a lot looser!
Impact #2: You don’t CRAVE FOOD all the time
It takes out body longer to burn through that stored fat, so it will take longer for our energy to go down and tell the body that we need to eat again to replenish. Cutting out the simple carbs and refined sugars will lead your body to change the way it feels about eating and you’ll find yourself skipping those snacks and not feeling that hunger you’re used to all the time!
Impact #3: MORE ENERGY
Everyone has probably heard for the energy drink crash. At first you’re full of energy and then an hour later you’re running on empty! The same thing applies to eating those refined sugars and simple carbs. Changing to a low carb diet changes the way our body processed energy. A diet low in carbs means that you are eating foods that keep those energy levels sky high and avoid the downward spiral!
Impact #4: LEANER STOMACH!
Saving the best for last! Simply reducing your carb intake will have a natural effect of flattening your stomach. This amazing reward doesn’t even take that long to kick in, which should serve as motivation to keep with the healthier diet!
