While complex carbohydrates are part of fast weight loss because they take longer to digest and provide the body with fuel, simple carbs are among its greatest enemies. The body converts simple carbs into sugar that contributes to weight gain and other health issues. Review what benefits you’ll enjoy when you banish unhealthy carbs from your diet as part of taking Phentermine 37.5mg.
Efficient Fat Burning
Reducing the number of high-density carbs you consume daily forces the body to burn stored fat, such as belly fat. The body burns this fat instead of using sugars from the carbs for fuel. For extra help, exercise in the morning before you eat breakfast so you burn even more stored fat.
No Stomach Bloat
In addition to burning belly fat, replacing simple carbohydrates with high-fiber foods causes the abdomen to de-bloat. It also prevents unhealthy microbes in the gut that love to eat sugar from taking over and contributing to bloat.
“Bumping up fiber can help promote healthy regularity,” says Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN, registered dietitian and founder of Isabel Smith Nutrition.
Reduced Hunger Pangs
Simple carbs make you feel full, but only temporarily. Because the body converts them to sugar so quickly, they cause blood sugar to spike and crash, leaving you hungry within about 20 minutes. Such carbs also make you feel sluggish. Eliminating them and eating high-fiber and high-protein foods instead keeps you feeling full and energized.
Decreased Diabetes Risk
Consuming sugar regularly increases the risk of diabetes, something cutting out simple carbs helps prevent.
“The lower and more steady we keep blood sugar, the less insulin is released on a consistent basis and the more insulin-sensitive our tissues remain — which is a good thing,” Smith notes.
