Ready to start your ketogenic or low carb diet? Before you begin to clear your refrigerator, there’s something you should know. Not all carbs belong in the garbage. While some carbs are the scourge of humanity that most people make them out to be, others are quite innocent and even helpful. A good understanding of net carbs is very important in a keto or low carb diet.

What is a carb?

The problem with most low carb diets is that they count total carbs per day, which means all the carbs you eat are taken into account. That includes carbs with high nutrition and fiber content, such as fruits, and vegetables. The benefit of counting net carbs is that it allows you to include more food in your diet, plant-derived food included. Net carbs is a calculation of only the starches and sugars in the food when the fiber and sugar alcohol is subtracted. Cutting down on impact carbs is a good way to keep your net carb count low.

Kеtоѕіѕ mеаnѕ thаt the body hаѕ gоnе frоm using carbohydrates as its ѕоurсе оf fuеl to stored burned fats-almost exclusively.

On any given day, the average person consumes upwards of 225 grams of carbohydrates a day!

Impact Vs. non impact carbs

Impact Carbs

As the name suggests, impact carbs are the carbs that have a high impact on your blood sugar level. They are also known as high GI (high glucose index carbs). When you ingest them, they are rapidly absorbed into your bloodstream, causing insulin levels to spike. Whenever carbs enter the body, they need to be used immediately, otherwise, they get stored as excess fat. When impact carbs enter the body, there is simply not enough time for the body to use all the energy at once. As a result, the impact carbs are stored as body fat, which can lead to poor health and obesity. These are the carbs that belong in the garbage.

Non-Impact

Carbs In the other corner, we have the non-impact carbs. These are the low GI carbs that are absorbed into your bloodstream slowly. The prolonged release allows the body to use the energy more efficiently and there is less likelihood of an insulin spike. These are the kind of carbs that do not belong in the garbage. In fact, these are the ones that help us to maintain ketosis and low carb diets.

Fiber

When we talk about non-impact carbs, fruits, veggies, and whole grains come to mind. These are the non-impact carbs which contain fiber and sugar alcohol. Fiber is beneficial because it helps to move digested food through our bodies aiding in weight loss and lowering our risk for disease.

There are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble and each is digested differently. As soluble fiber moves through our digestive system, it attaches itself to cholesterol particles, reducing cholesterol levels and lowering the risk of heart disease. It keeps weight down by keeping you full without adding calories to your diet. Soluble fiber is typically found in oatmeal, nuts, beans, apples, and blueberries.

Insoluble fiber helps to regulate your digestion and helps weight loss by staving off hunger pangs. It is found in the seeds of fruit, whole wheat bread, and brown rice.


Block carbs intelligently

Codeage Keto Carb Blocker is a dynamic fusion of 500mg white kidney bean, 250mg green tea and 200 mg pure cinnamon formulated to help block carbohydrate absorption into the body. It helps cut down the subcutaneous body fat buildup. Specifically designed for ketogenic and low-carb dieters looking to block carbs and give an extra boost to their fat burning process.

The two main carb blockers available today are white kidney been extract and green tea (camellia sinensis). The white kidney bean works by inhibiting an enzyme which breaks specific bonds that holds starch. This is the most popular carb blocker. Green tea extract decreases starch digestion and absorption. Not only can you lose weight from taking carb blockers, you can improve your gut health as well.

Taking Codeage Keto Carb Blockers may block the enzyme alpha-amylase which is produced by the saliva from attaching starches and breaking it down into simple carbs the body absorbs. The food you just ate will quickly move out of the body and prevent it from absorbing any calories. The goal of carb blockers is to enable you to eat carbs and not count them as calories at all!

 

Counting net carbs

One benefit of counting net carbs is that it helps to keep the good things like fiber in your diet. Net carbs are what you’re left with after you subtract the grams of fiber per serving from the total carbohydrate amount per serving. For example, if a food has a carb count of 15 and it has 6 grams of fiber, the net carb count will be 9.

Fiber is essential for our bodily function. When you subtract it from the total carb count, all you’re left with is the true caloric and carbohydrate count. By eliminating the fiber, a net carb count gives you a more accurate measure of the damage an item can do.

Generally, you want to keep your net carb count low. Non -impact carbs are the ones which really contribute to your body’s overall health. Counting net carbs helps you to keep better track of the impact and non-impact carbs coming into your body. It’s the key to a healthier and easier to maintain low carb or ketosis diet.
