Inflammation is the body’s/persons response to a problem. When your body thinks there’s a constant problem, it lives in a chronic state of inflammation. This steady, low level inflammatory state underlies all chronic disease and suppressed immunity. Essentially, it’s at the root cause of just about every disease in imaginable. So what causes inflammation in the body? One of the main things is high sugar/carbohydrate consumption. Eating high sugar/carbs causes a massive insulin spike. This results in a heavy sugar crash. The body perceives an emergency and causes a cortisol response. This is alarming to the body. This causes inflammation in the body. Inflammation then triggers disease. The daily cycle of this process takes a toll of the body. You age faster. Hold on to fat. Feel tired and sluggish. Get sick. Go low sugar/carbs unless you are training hard. Ok?
