Depending on the type of carbohydrates in the food, it turns into glucose in the body after consumption. Glucose rises quickly or slowly in the blood. When glucose rises, insulin hormone is secreted from the pancreas. Circulating glucose is transferred to the cells, and glucose transferred to the cells is transformed into energy. If the glucose taken is excessive, it is converted into glycogen for later use and stored in the liver and muscles. Although it varies from person to person, the liver can store 80-100 grams of glycogen, and the muscles 300-500 grams. (Each muscle weight in your body stores about 14 grams of glycogen) This means about 2000 calories of energy storage for a person. If your glycogen stores are full in your body, the increased glucose is converted into fat in the body. THEREFORE, CARBONHYDRATE CONSUMPTION SHOULD BE PROPORTIONED WITH THE NEED OF ENERGY. OTHERWISE, YOUR BODY FAT INCREASES QUICKLY. A diet high in simple carbohydrates stimulates your hunger center in the brain, resulting in more nutrient consumption! Use your carbohydrate preferences for bulgur, legumes and whole grains, which are rich in fiber and non-carbohydrate nutrients!
