The common misconception that “fat makes you fat” has been well-proven to not be entirely true. Instead, research has shown that the real culprit behind weight-gain is carbohydrates.
Carbohydrates are found in many of the foods that we eat on a daily basis. Carbs are found in all kinds of food that ranges from cereals, toast, jam, milk, yogurt, granola bars and fruits, to things like bread, pizza, rice, potatoes and pasta.
Here are the 3 basic reasons why carbs make you fat…
- Increased Hunger –
It’s rather simple: Eating carbohydrates causes the body to release insulin, which removes the nutrients from the bloodstream since it expects more nutrients to arrive, which makes you feel as if the meal was not big enough and wanting more. Not feeling full usually ends up with you eating more food, and this is what causes weight gain.
- Carb Addiction –
Consuming carbs triggers the release of a brain chemical called serotonin, which improves the mood and causes a relaxing feeling since it reduces stress, anxiety, and pain. However, it is possible to become addicted to this serotonin release, which leaves you craving more and more carbohydrates in order to get that “feel-good” feeling. By eating more carbs, you can increase your weight-gain.
- Fat Storage –
Eating carbohydrates causes the pancreas to release insulin which is a hormone that regulates the sugar in the blood stream. Insulin dictates whether the sugar in the food we eat gets used for immediate energy or stored as fat for later use. When there is more sugar in the blood stream than what the body needs for immediate energy, the rest gets stored as fat. And the more excess sugar there is, the higher the fat storage.
