have you tried this?



Ever wonder what would happen to your body if you stopped eating refined carbs?


It’s well known that refined and processed carbs contribute to weight gain, and so reducing the amount of these in your diet would logically lead to a leaner, fitter you.


But is it true, or is it hype? And is it really worth giving up your carb-o-holic ways?


Here’s what you can expect when taking a break from refined carbs…


1. You BURN FAT


When you stop eating simple carbs your body no longer has readily available calories to burn, and so it clicks over into burning stored fat as energy. This means that your pants will start feeling looser around your waist and thighs.


2. You FEEL LESS HUNGRY


Fat burns longer and slower than simple carbs and so your energy stores will take longer to deplete. This means that you’ll find yourself skipping that afternoon pick-me-up snack and powering through until mealtime without hunger pains. You’ll also notice that it takes longer to feel the hunger in the mornings after waking up, once you’ve cut the simple carbohydrates and refined sugars out of your diet.


3. You HAVE MORE ENERGY


Living on a diet of simple sugars and refined carbohydrates puts your body on a continual energy roller coaster. Right after you eat your energy is high and then, whoosh, an hour later your energy levels crash. All of that changes once you cut out those simple carbs. The low-carb meals that you switch to are filled with nutrient-dense foods that sustain your energy levels for hours at a time, saving you from that frustrating roller coaster.


4. Your STOMACH GETS FLATTER


Probably the most exciting of the low carb body changes…once you’ve been off of simple carbs for a few weeks your stomach will visibly become flatter. It’s a well-deserved reward and one that will keep you motivated to continue your healthier eating habits.


While eating healthy, nutritious meals is awesome, don’t forget that exercise is half of the battle when it comes to getting and staying fit.
