Let’s play Taboo! What are 3 activities you can think of that are considered taboo in some places of the world ? I know of one..
Eating Sugar! Ithas become more and more taboo to be eating sugar, this belief is starting to work its way around the world.
For today’s post I want to talk about eating sugar. For the past 5 years I have been repairing my metabolism due to it being damaged by poor food choices and habits that were taught by the health and medical industry. Throughout this time, I’ve been shocked by peoples reactions towards my decision to consume more carbs than protein.
Even though most of the fitness and medical world view this sometimes called “white devil” as dangerous, promotes weight gain, bad for teeth, etc… If you look at any high school or college physiology book it tells you how important glucose is to making energy for our bodies. Glucose is a prime component in the Kreb Cycle. This cycle is a process that uses oxygen and glucose to create energy and keep us ALIVE AND HEALTHY. When we are not consuming carbs, our back up generator kicks on and instead of using oxygen and glucose it uses stress hormones and glycogen (converted sugar that the liver has stored and has a limited amount) This hormonal regulation type of metabolism is inflammatory and is only supposed to be “on” when were under stress/state of survival or sleeping. fThis is because it is inflammatory and it eats away at our brain, muscle and bone tissue, when the body does not have enough fuel, and it creates very little energy (2-3 ATP instead of 34 ATP. I will go into more details about this in a future post)
Here are just a few symptoms of what being glucose deficient looks like:
Extreme fast weight loss (due to brain wanting to have its favorite meal, sends out stress hormones to pull nutrients from body. AKA you're thin because you're eating yourself)
Tons of energy then crashes
Bad Sleep Gut issues
Auto Immune diseases
