Not All Carbs Makes one Fat; Good Carbs Takes out Fats

Carbohydrates or carbs are almost seen as a ‘dirty’ word for the health-conscious people. Fortunately, this is not true. We need carbohydrates to survive or live healthily.

Unfortunately, many don’t know that there are different types of carbs. The types of carbs you consume make a lot differences! In fact, most people do not consume enough of certain types of carbs, such as dietary fibre in their diet. The lack of it is the real culprit for many health issues such as diabetes and obesity.

Carbs is the most readily available nutrient for our body as it is converted to glucose quickly so that it can be used by the body to carry out its activities. The downside of this nutrient (as compared to others such as protein and fat) is that they can’t be stored in the body for long. Unused glucose drives up blood sugar level which is then converted into fats. High blood sugar level becomes detrimental when our body is unable to regulate it - that’s how diabetes is developed.

Besides medication, what can a diabetic person do to minimize complications from diabetes?

The answer is to take the right food. Food, carbohydrates in particular, plays a decisive role in managing diabetes risks. Being overweight increases the risk of a person becoming diabetic by multi-folds. You don’t want to eat too much carbs and have them converted into fats that deface your waist. If you are already diabetic or are concerned about having elevated blood sugar level, you want to take the right food that helps to stablise your blood sugar level.

Take the right food that contains carbohydrates which don’t get converted into fats in your body.

We bring you a special meal that contains limited carbohydrates. It comes with a fibre complex coupled with rich Antioxidants, Omega-3 and minerals. In fact, this meal has the precise proportion of all these nutrients that can deliver an impact that is much bigger than their sun.
