A lovely inforgraphic that tells the confused and non-believers how low carbing is for us…
People often worry about me when they find out I eat low carb but I’m actually in better health because I don’t eat regular bread or pasta. I get all of my nutrients and then some from the foods I can eat. I’m losing and keeping off the weight, I have fantastic blood pressure and sugar levels, and only have a handful of my PCOS symptoms.
I have no qualms with people who eat starchy carbs. There are many people like my brothers who are lucky and missed the genetic grenade. Their bodies have no problem processing normal moderate amounts of them. It’s the people who live off starches and sugar that worry me. Even if they’re not overweight they’re drastically increasing their risk for type-2 diabetes (as well as a handful of other problems) and most don’t even realize it. I’m appalled by the amount of people I’ve met in the health and fitness community who believe eating fat causes diabetes.
