Why you should not take a high carbohydrate diet

Rita Cropper/ March 25, 2017/ Diet

A high carbohydrate diet has a lot of negative effects in the body. Carbohydrates are meant to give us energy for physical and mental activity. However, it is important to keep the levels minimum. Most of the homes take carbs as the main food group, and this is wrong. Carbohydrates should be taken with other foods. In a classic healthy meal, carbohydrates should take a quarter of the plate. Health experts argue that only a small amount of carb is needed to energize our body. If an excess amount of carbs is taken, then only a small percentage is used for body functions, and the rest is converted into fat.

Dangers of a high carb diet

Obesity or overweight issues

The first physical manifestation on the dangers of a high carb diet is obesity. The role of carbs in the body is to provide strength for physical activity. Most of the people don’t need to take a high car diet because they don’t engage in any physical activities. For instance, if you take a high carb diet and you have a desk job, you don’t need much physical energy. After taking a diet rich in carbohydrates, the body produces a lot of insulin to counter the carbs. At the end of the day, you develop insulin resistance, and you are unable to lose weight because the excess carbohydrates are converted to body fat.


For successful weight loss, a ketogenic diet that focuses on fat and proteins is important.

By eliminating carbohydrates in the diet, you encourage your body to go into ‘starving’ and this leads to weight loss.

Candida yeast overgrowth

Candida is a bacteria naturally occurring in the gut, but if there is an overgrowth, it leads to a yeast infection. It is said that a high carbohydrate diet causes an overgrowth of the bacteria. The bacteria feed on carbohydrates so by taking a high carb diet; you are increasing their population. Some of the signs of candida overgrowth include fatigue, foggy brain, and regular stomach infections.

Risk of diabetes

When the insulin levels are high, time will come when insulin will no longer be produced. If the body can never produce insulin, then diabetes is likely to occur.


Cardiovascular diseases

There is always a risk of heart disease if you don’t control your carbohydrate intake. If you take carbs in large amounts, the carbohydrates are turned into fat, and the fat surrounds the lining of the heart. The excess fat surrounding the hear leads to pressure on the heart causing heart disease.…
