3) carb tipping point –
Fact: that one person may get by well consuming a serving or two of carbs at meals, while their close friend or coworker’s needs are met in only a few bites.
The carb tipping point (ctp) is the amount of carbs which your body can optimally use while giving you ample energy, balancing hunger and cravings, and creating your goal physique or fat loss.
It is balanced and determined in ‘bites’ not measured cups or servings.
For example, A male looking to gain mass or training for an endurance activity may get by with 20 bites per meal of carbs. A dealer looking to cut fat, and is moderately active may need closer to 5 smaller bites.
Finding your ctp requires mindful observance and being a detective to your own body and its needs.
One other note:
Carbs, as stated above, refer to starches, pasta, rice, bread, grains, starchy veggies, and higher sugar or sweeter fruit.
Vegetables and low sweet fruits should be the centerpiece of your diet as these carbs provide nutrients, water, fiber, and balance HEC. Round them out with so clean proteins and a garnish of good fats. 🙂
