When you are not metabolically flexible and can’t easily burn body fat for fuel, your body will be dependent for energy from the carbohydrates you eat.
Think about carbohydrates like kindling in a fire.🔥 Carbs burn hot and fast. If there are no logs 🪵 in the fire (dietary & body fat) you will be out of fuel very quickly.
Your brain which is very energy hungry, will be the first to indicate to you that there is an energy crisis.
All of the symptoms above and more can be signs that your body is unable to burn body fat for fuel and this is often accompanied by cravings and urgent hunger for foods high in carbohydrates and sugar.
Becoming metabolically flexible is one of the keys to health! You can start by lowering carbs AND INCREASING FAT!
Remember, the fat is like the log in the fire. It will burn low and slow and give you energy for hours! If you can’t make it more than a few hours between meals, up the fat and see if that helps!
