Carbohydrate Overload

How many carbohydrates do we need each day?

The answer is (drumroll please…)

NONE.

ZERO.

Thats right: NOTHING.

Let me repeat that:

We NEED ABSOLUTELY NO CARBOHYDRATES IN OUR DIET.

The book “Nutrition for fitness and sport” by Melvin H. Williams answers this. From what the nutritional experts, the government, and physicians have told us for decades, we would expect the answer to be “lots of carbohydrates”, but it isn’t. In fact, the answer is shocking:

“The body can adapt to a carbohydrate-free diet and manufacture the glucose it needs from parts of protein and fat.”

Dr. Williams uses the word “adapt”, to a minimum carbohydrate diet. I maintain a minimum carbohydrate is your body’s NATURAL STATE and it’s unnatural state is carbohydrate overload. Everyone has it backwards.

How much carbohydrate is in you?

“Student Companion for Stryer’s Biochemistry” makes it clear: ONLY A MERE 1% OF TISSUE WEIGHT IS CARBOHYDRATE. Almost nothing!!

A high carbohydrate diet makes no scientific sense unless you want to fatten yourself up like cattle before the slaughter. Always remember, science relies on facts, not feelings. While it may sound good to have a diet high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, it makes no scientific sense, given how our bodies operate.
