What happens to the carbs?

I have come to the realisation that I eat way too many carbs and not enough healthy fats. Could following a Keto way of eating help with that? I am still eating clean – only focusing on fish and veg plus less fruit. No major change in what I eat – just the way I eat it

Dr. Malcolm Kendrick

I have found a strange thing happens when I talk to nutritionists about the fate of carbohydrates in the human body. Professors, who shall be nameless, appear unable to admit how basic human physiology works. For example, they may concede a few steps here and there, but they will never, ever, admit to the following chain that I have described below.

1: Carbohydrates, such as fruit and vegetables, bread, pasta… and, of course, less complex sugars – such as the stuff we sprinkle on cornflakes, that we call ‘sugar’, are all turned into simple sugars in the human digestive tract before entering the bloodstream.

2: If you keep eating carbohydrate the resultant simple sugars will, at first, be stored. The human body can pack away around 1,500 calories of sugar. However, once this limit is reached, the liver will turn the rest into fat.

the most amazingly inspirational quote ever

Watching old episodes of Grey’s Anatomy (Series 1 Episode 6) on Netflix brought me to what I believe is the most amazingly inspirational quote ever IMHO

“The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can’t pretend we haven’t been told. We’ve all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still, sometimes, we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug, until we can’t anymore, until we finally understand for ourselves, what Benjamin Franklin meant: That knowing, is better than wondering. That waking, is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst, most intractable mistake, beats the hell out of never trying

Everything must be done in our own time, in our own way, even if people believe we should do things differently.

No matter how hard to control or deal with a mistake may be at least I can say I gave it a go. I decided to have at it!
