    I am sure everyone is carb sensitive at the start. It took me a good week or so to cut down on carbs...Like my first day i ate eggs for breakfast, then tuna and peperoni sticks for lunch and for dinner i have buritos...the buritos killed me because of the wrap...but the next days were easy because i was starting to get used to it... Hope this helps..Start small work you way up!

    All I was doing was asking how does one know if they're carb sensitive or not. I don't know how this post answers my question.

    If what your asking about is insulin sensitivity then it depends from person to person. Those who are more insulin sensitive will not be as affected by "high carbs" as they can efficiently break it down due to being able to release insulin effectively to break-down said glucose molecules. Those who are more insulin insensitive will be much more "carb-sensitive" as you would put it.

    As far as finding out if you are carb sensitive or not, its as simple as this: try a diet high in protein and carbs and see how that works out for you - if you find you can efficiently lose fat while on this diet then you should be okay. Otherwise, you can always change the macros around. Some examples are the 40/40/20 protein/carbs/fat or any other variation such as 40/30/30, etc.

    Basically, everybody's body is different. You need to find out what works best for your body. I believe there are many articles about this that you can try looking up. And as previously stated: Carbs do not make you fat. Fat does not make you fat. A surplus of calories makes you fat. Get into a calorie deficit and you will lose weight. That is the simplest view of how things work. Then comes the macro-nutrient proportions, meal timing, work-outs, etc. Good luck.

    Not really. Carbohydrates are indeed evil for people with very slow metabolisms. I don't know how can some people claim that you can eat a bunch of pasta, flour, oatmeal, rice and potatoes and still get cut. That's not true for people who get bloated and get fat real easy.

    For example i have noticed that when i eat less carbs. i would look more muscular in the mirror

    So getting the carbohydrates from green vegetables and fruits like apples is the way to go to get cut. And of course lots of protein

    What you can do is use the mirror. If you see that you look more muscular, less bloated, i mean if u see your face less bloated and a more muscular shreded appearance with a low-carb diet then go for a low carb diet, where you get your carbs from green vegetables and some fruits low in G.I.

    However if you don't get fat and get bloated from eating potatoes, rice and starchy-carbohydrates then you can follow a higher carb diet and you are not carb-sensitive. Just judge your diet by using the mirror

    If you get sleepy after eating carbs.

    If you get hungry soon after eating carbs.

    If you get bloated the next day after eating lots of carbs.

    These could be signs that you are a redneck. I mean carb sensitive. lol
