The things we eat and drink on a daily basis can impact our health in big ways. Too many carbohydrates, for instance, can lead to insulin resistance, which is a major contributor to cardiovascular disease and Type 2 Diabetes. But what are carbs, exactly? And what do they do to our bodies? Richard J. Wood explains.

If you dont eat car you will lose weight and also if you dont eat fats you will lose weight. Combination of both is a problem. When I say not eat I mean redu če it to 10 % of calories.... Fries has both simple carbs and fats. Cakes also have both but in the end only carbs are problem.

Carbs (just like calories) are tiny little bastards that creep inside your mouth while you’re asleep, making it impossible to lose weight..

Excellent Video. 1.9 K down voted this. This is simply terrifying. This is basic science even if none of this happened to you! Insulin Sensitivity is the holy grail of human health, period.

Directly from the video he said things like vegetables and whole grains contain complex carbohydrates that are linked together with beta bonds, which we cannot break down. Eat all the whole grains and veggies you want. I lost 60lbs after switching from junk food to whole grains, veggies, lean meat, and dairy. And I dropped my blood pressure back to normal levels after being in the prehypertension risk level.

It's a challenge for me not only because of my love for sweets, but also because my family insists on eating a lot of white bread, and sugary snacks, but also refuse to take the effort of searching for whole wheat bread and *not* buy the snacks so frequently...

I can see how increasing the amount of vocal fry makes the VO somewhat more intimate in its delivery, but honestly it's hard to concentrate on the message.
