Top of the morning everyone! We have talked about IF some days ago.
It was taking periodic breaks from eating, so it 'tricks' your metabolism into thinking that is a day with less food.
But, there is a relationship between carbohydrates and intermittent fasting.
We have said that with IF, your insulin sensitivity increases, meanwhile the insulin(the main thing to carry the glucose to the cells) is low.
So, what is now the thing with the carbs?
Well, from the three food groups(protein,fats,carbs), carbohydrates stimulate the release of insulin to the maximum.
So, eating more carbohydrates during intermittent fasting, may cause you problems with your insulin - what does it mean?
It means that the chance of storing fat is greatly increased. Try to eat foods higher in fats/protein, and cut the carbs, so you won't cause insulin problems.
That doesn't mean to cut completely the carbs - you can still have them, but in a moderate way.
With that being said, try to cut out soft drinks, processed foods, and try to eat more vegetables, enough protein, and add more volume to your food. Happy IF !
