Why you should never completely cut carbs out…


1. Lack of Energy

If you have cut out carbs to lose weight and although the #weight is dropping you feel tired, you are experiencing the “low carb” crash. Since your brain and muscles run mainly on glucose, lack of carbs equates to a lack of energy. So this is one of the main reasons you should not cut out carbs.

2. Nutrient Deficiency

3. If you are active

If you are an avid exerciser, your body needs carbs even more as your fuel. Just make sure to get your carbs from whole grain foods because your body cannot tell the difference from refined flour and jelly beans. Your #body breaks this down the same way. Sedentary #people need fewer carbs because of their lack of active lifestyle.

4. Short time gain, long term pain.

This is only a short fix and yes you may trim down for a few weeks but when you decide to go back to eating carbs, a little bit will show a lot! Your body will hold onto it for dear life as your metabolism is in survival mode.
