Food Tech Connect posted on its website this interesting infographic designed by Column Five Media for Massive Health that describes in depth the way in which carbohydrates make the body store fat.
A few conclusions:
- Eating fat doesn’t actually make us fat. It’s the insulin cycle, triggered by eating carbohydrates.
- The easily-digestible carbs like refined flour, soda, and potatoes are the worst offenders.
- For weight-loss, a low-carb diet is a lot more effective than a low-fat, high-carb one.
