Consuming Simple Carbohydrates
Simple carbs like refined breads and sweets metabolize much too quickly. As a result the body does not have to work hard to digest it which means fewer calories are burned. On the other hand complex carbs requires the body to work much harder to digest and they provide the body with the vitamins, minerals and fiber needed to keep metabolism up. Loading up on simple carbs can also result in carbohydrate sensitivity. With carb sensitivity blood sugar spikes and the body becomes unable to metabolize glucose correctly.
