Must-Read: Do You Have Carb Tolerance?
Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and then you’re only a few weeks away from Christmas, which basically means that you’re probably going to end up putting on about 10 pounds over the next 60 days. This is just the way the winter goes. But it also means you’re going to be loading up on a whole lot of carbs, because that is just what these winter dinners are like. But if your body is having issues the day after you chow down on these meals, maybe you have a problem with carb tolerance.
And so today we’re heading over to Precision Nutrition, where they have a long piece about just what carb tolerance is, and then what you can do about it. Here’s the start of the piece for you:
What is ?carb tolerance? anyway?
Actually, come to think of it, does ?carb tolerance? even exist?
Sure, the phrase peppers a lot of contemporary dinner conversations.
But does anybody really know what it means?
Maybe ?carb intolerant? people just eat too many carbs. Or the wrong kind. You know ? cookie carbs, donut carbs.
Or maybe the problem isn?t carbs at all. Maybe their ?baked potato? has more sour cream and butter than potato.
Then again?maybe some of those people simply can?t process carbs the way the rest of us do.
In other words, maybe their genes are to blame.
Head on over to read some more about what this carb tolerance thing is, and then maybe get yourself checked out if you perhaps have this thing. Because it is not a pleasant thing to find out for yourself after the holidays, when all of that food is already in your system, tearing your insides out.
