I keep reading and reading about healthy diet and nutrition. I’m still trying to figure out the truth. I’m wondering if I’m still trying for too low a fat profile.
Is this true?
The studies keep piling up indicating that carbohydrate intake is the major variable in determining body composition and that excess glucose from carbohydrate intake (especially from processed grains and sugars) is the primary culprit in obesity and in many disease processes. It follows logically that if you can limit carb intake to a range of which is absolutely necessary (and even up to 50 grams a day over) and make the difference up with tasty fats and protein, you can literally reprogram your genes back to the evolutionary-based factory setting you had at birth – the setting that offered you the opportunity to start life as a truly efficient fat-burning organism and to continue to do so for the rest of your life as long as you send the right signals to your genes.
So 100 grams of carbs? how may grams of “healthy fats” and how much protein for 1200 calories a day. I should know this!
