20. Reduce carbs, and eat more proteins and fats
“The most important step is to control the carbohydrates,” say Duffy. “Most people get fat from eating too many carbs, eating carbs alone, and eating them late at night. Instead, what people should do is eat carbs in combination with complete proteins and good fats. Eating carbs alone will lead to an increase in blood glucose. This increase in blood glucose causes an over-release of insulin, which triggers a fat storage response by the body. In short, your body’s hunger mechanism and sugar cravings skyrocket. When carbs are combined with proteins and fats, glucose in the blood stream is buffered by the metabolites of the consumed proteins and fats. This will not lead to an over-release of insulin and thus not fat storage, hunger or sugar cravings.” If you’re foolishly fearing dietary fat, stop.
