A diet high in…

Simple carbohydrates, can actually make us more hungry.
Carbohydrates break down into either glucose which can be used for energy or fuel for the body, or glycogen which can be stored by the body, as a reserve to be used later when the body demands it.
And simple carbohydrates are the ones that are usually processed or refined, which is the reason they break down into glucose so fast – making us more hungry – more quickly.
A better bet is to consume more complex carbohydrates, which are the carbohydrates, starches and sugars found in their natural form, like in fruits and vegetables, where it takes much longer to break down – thus making us less hungry – less quickly.
And complex carbohydrates are healthier for us and they don’t spike the insulin response as much as simple carbohydrates.
