High-Carb diets are pretty popular in some circles. Like most fad diets, it will die off – or, unfortunately, the gullible will.
Eating a high-carb diet is downright dangerous. The only society who has eaten a high-carb diet is us. Now. Historically, the United States has become the largest carb-munchers ever. High-carb, and of course low fat, and naturally disease is on the rise.
But maybe there are benefits after all. Here are some reasons I came up with why you should eat a high-carb diet…
#6 You like needles
If you like needles, chug down that high-fructose soda chuck full of carbs. Your wonderfully-made body will deal with all that sugar in your system for now, but sooner or later you’ll be diagnosed with diabetes due to all that high fructose and will have to shoot up insulin.
#5 You like public restrooms
One of the symptoms of diabetes is frequent urination. It’s not so bad, really, when you have a really great bathroom. But public restrooms can be…icky.
#4 You like being hungry
Let’s face it, eating carbs makes you hungry. Your blood sugar goes high, then real low, giving you the shakes. You’re doing the Elvis in your kitchen two hours after a high-carb meal. Not cool.
#3 You just got a new bed
Hey, I don’t blame you. You get a new bed, the covers are cozy, and you don’t want to get up. This is a really good reason! So eat those carbs, your fatigue will increase, and you’ll have an excuse for some bed rest.
#2 You want to donate blood
It’s commendable. Really it is. But there are better ways to donate blood rather then via slow wound healing caused by diabetes (caused by insulin resistance, caused by eating a high carb diet!).
#1 Reason: You want to lose weight
No, really! Eat all the carbs you want, and you’ll lose weight.
Just ask anyone with diabetes who’s had to lose their toes, feet, and legs.
