What happen when constantly eating a high carb diet?
Basically the digestion of carb produce, amoung other monosaccharides, high level of glucose in the blood stream. This high level of glucose induce high production rate by your pancreas of the hormone insulin to down regulate glucose. It is widely speculated that this constant insulin production "wear" the pancreas and "desensitise" the receptors on cell to whom the insulin "speak".
Depending on wich one get "worn" the first, we see diabetes type 2 and then type 1!
It is the right diet for some, for others it has disastrous health consequences. If you want to know if it is right for you, look to your ancestors and what they ate.
I cut out sugar and carbs 3 years ago. I have lost 5 stone in weight, no more acid, colds headaches etc. My diet is now mostly protein, green veg, salad and fat. I have to say I have never felt better!
