I have read a few articles about this. I find the concept to be worth looking into further.
When you eat carbohydrates it is a common misconception that you will put on weight.
However carbs are burned in the body once they enter whether they come from simple Sugars or complex carbs.
The carbs are burned within 6 to 10 hours of entering the body. If excess carbs enter the body they are converted to heat in a process called thermogenesis.
Carbs are thought to make you fat because insulin is produced by the body when sugar enters and this causes any fat to be stored. However if you eat no fat there is no fat to be stored and you don’t put on weight.
The fat you eat is the fat you wear!
