Follow rule number one: the minimum amount of sweets and fatty foods!
To know which foods are allowed and which are not – see more detailed explanations that follow.
Carbohydrates and insulin
Insulin is a hormone that controls glucose, which the body uses or stored as a backup. When a large amounts of insulin are quickly released in the body, there may be fatigue, hunger, or even a bad mood. You can feel it when you eat ex. a large portion of pastry…
The body then does not use fats as an energy source, and the production of hormones that help the body to burn fat and calories, stops and therefore appears “heavy” feeling in the stomach. The food you eat actually defines the amount of insulin secreted by the body. Food with a high sugar content, or one which is industrially processed, requires the secretion of large amounts of insulin. If you keep eating this kind of food – it will increase the fatty deposits.
Food that contains more fiber, less sugar and is less refined (with fewer additives and less industrially processed) consumes less insulin during digestion, and doesn’t lower so much the level of sugar in the blood. The human body, of course, is more pleasant for such foods, since less energy is needed for their combustion, and substances that are not useful for the body are easier is removed from it.
It is important to know that sugar is not the only carbohydrate, whose intake must be controlled. The human body primarily transforms all carbohydrates into glucose, which is why every exaggeration with rice, bread, fruit or other foods rich in carbohydrates, leads to an increase in blood sugar levels.
The very fact that certain foods do not contain sugar, does not mean we can eat as much as we do. Diet plan is designed so that the carbohydrate content in the food be balanced every day, at least as far as possible.
