Unmasking the Impact of Simple Carbs on Your Health

November 13, 20231 min read

The swift rise in blood sugar caused by consuming simple carbs, often termed "bad carbs," triggers a cascade of health issues. Insulin, the pancreatic hormone, attempts to regulate blood sugar by transporting it to cells for energy. However, continual elevation due to simple carb consumption leads to insulin resistance, paving the way for type 2 diabetes and associated risks like heart attack, stroke, and kidney failure.

Identifying simple carbs is crucial; some examples include:

  1. Sugary Drinks:

    • Dubbed "liquid crack" for their addictiveness and harmful effects.

  2. Pastries, Cookies, Cakes, White Bread, Packaged Snacks:

    • Beware of vibrant packaging or health claims, as these may indicate a high simple carb content.

  3. Chips and French Fries:

    • Culprits in the realm of simple carb consumption.

  4. Ice Cream:

    • Often laden with refined sugar, contributing to elevated simple carb intake.

Combatting the detrimental effects of simple carbs involves informed dietary choices. Subscribe to my Health Newsletter for additional insights on achieving optimal health through food and nutrition.
