ANABOLIC CARBS
🌱
Eating carbs results in a spike in insulin (don’t panic), which has been shown to be more anabolic (muscle building) than testosterone itself😳
🌱
✅Insulin counteracts any kind of catabolic (muscle wasting) hormones
🌱
✅Insulin also increases your metabolism to burn more overall calories
🌱
Carbs when digested into your system turn into glycogen which is basically energy for your muscles and your brain
🌱
So let’s sit back and forget all the things you have been told about the horrors of ‘Carbs’ and look at the facts when it comes to building muscle.💪🏼
🌱
In CARBS we have a substance which helps increase hormones that are better than testosterone, stops hormones that waste away muscle, increases your metabolism, and gives energy to muscles to work harder in the gym. Why again do we restrict this amazing macronutrient?🤦🏻‍♂️
🌱
A high-carb diet can produce quick energy for physical exertion, at least in the short term. Carbohydrates metabolize quickly, providing the body’s main source of fuel, which is why athletes often eat high-carb foods in preparation for an event. Ask yourself – when you hit the gym – are you there as an athlete trying to bust out PBs while in beast mode for workouts – or are you just on a attempting to fad diet and follow the crow while going through the motions?
🌱
Take home: carbs (not white bread and Christmas cookies) are an essential part of the equation
🌱
Consumption of an occasional treat is ok (as long as it aligns with your personal goals) 🌱
When eating these treats we can alter glycemic load in pairing (another topic to explore later) to reduce the short term effects of inflammation that ensues post flex meal

Have personal health goals you’re looking to attain? Feel like you’re running in circles trying to attain them? Need support?
