Why sweets are bad

Not that it was a secret: I abused choco­late, a bagel or a cheese­cake — and got bet­ter. “Sure, it’s a car­bo­hy­drate!” — any los­ing weight will snort. What is this car­bo­hy­drate?

Low-car­bo­hy­drate diets are a real boom of our time because of their quick results.

But they also have a down­side. Car­bo­hy­drates are the main fuel of our body. If you com­plete­ly exclude them, the brain is starv­ing, the body is weak­ened, and the over­all tone does not rise above the plinth. And after the end of the diet, the starv­ing brains take their toll and, bypass­ing the will, make you chew sug­ar direct­ly with spoons.

It is impor­tant to know: car­bo­hy­drate car­bo­hy­drate strife! There are sim­ple and com­plex, oth­er­wise — fast and slow car­bo­hy­drates.

Glu­cose, fruc­tose, galac­tose, sucrose, mal­tose and lac­tose are sim­ple, “fast” car­bo­hy­drates. In sim­ple terms, this is sug­ar, buns, sweets, cakes, fruits, pas­tries, bak­ery prod­ucts, milk.

The body absorbs them very quick­ly, and glu­cose enters the blood imme­di­ate­ly in large quan­ti­ties.

What happens when this happens:

why do we get fat
  1. Due to the rapid assim­i­la­tion, glu­cose enters the blood­stream almost instant­ly. We feel the rise of mood and effi­cien­cy — the brain has received a “dose”. In blood — “car­bo­hy­drate peak”.
  2. After some time, the pro­duc­tion of insulin begins, when, at the sig­nal of the brain, the endocrine glands “fire up” to pro­duce this hor­mone.
  3. Insulin entered the blood, but already when most of the car­bo­hy­drates had time to digest. Nev­er­the­less, he begins to send all the reserves of glu­cose that he can “reach” to the liv­er — turn into glyco­gen (the ener­gy reserve of the liv­er in case of an emer­gency short­age of glu­cose for the brain) and … fat.
  4. Too much insulin “insulin spike”. It begins to process all the glu­cose from the blood. Those. more than the one that came with the yum­my. And where does he take her? Yes, see point 3.
  5. The brain sig­nals that the glu­cose lev­el is too low. You expe­ri­ence severe hunger.
  6. The hand uncon­trol­lably reach­es for the sweet to urgent­ly sup­ply the brain with glu­cose. The cir­cle is closed.
