Today let’s talk about an important misconception about carbs. Various articles and books will say that carbs are the body’s most important source of fuel.

In my opinion, we should be asking what fuel source gives the body the most health. If the body is supposed to live on glucose, and other fuel sources aren’t natural, and they’re just used as a backup, why is there such a massive problem with diabetes worldwide?

Diabetes is a situation where they have dysfunctional insulin, so they can’t regulate glucose. Insulin is either dysfunctional or there isn’t enough insulin to take the glucose out of the blood. Now, there is a higher level of glucose in the blood. Both of these things can occur when you have high levels of glucose or carbohydrates in the diet.

If the body likes carbohydrates, then why is everyone becoming a diabetic? Also, why do so many health problems clear up when you switch fuel sources from carbohydrates and glucose to fat and ketones? I believe the body is naturally designed to run on ketones, not glucose.
