xKorix saidI just eat tons of fat and protein...I'm never hungry seriously its not hard to slim down.
I don't know if it's true for everyone, but I'm with you on that one. Protein and fat sate my appetite for hours, and when I finally do get hungry, the hunger signals are very gentle. A meal loaded carbs, by contrast, will leave me ravenously hungry in less than two hours. I read a lot of the paleo diet blogs, and there is comment after comment from people who have effortlessly lost weight on a paleo diet, even while eating ad libitum.
Carbs cause an insulin response that trails that of the carb decay. That's why fat people ARE hungry when they eat fast carbs and plunge their blood sugar. If you eat slow carbs, and small meals often, that insulin response is much better managed. Many folks that are fat, are fat not so much because they eat excessively but because they fail to manage their insulin, and The Human Machine, in an intelligent way. They're also too lazy to study it, and would rather make excuses than modify their bad behavior.
Properly managed, insulin can make for great athletic performance and great gains. I've put many pounds of muscle on young men that I've taught how to manage that response appropriately, and one of the reasons I'm as big as I am, and still lean, is that I understand small meals often make for stable blood sugar that creates an anabolic state. Insulin is the most anabolic hormone of all (endogenous, or not), and, when properly managed, makes a huge difference in weight gain / weigh loss and athletic performance, as well as body composition. Carbs are protein sparing, and support muscle, as well as performance along with brain function. Low carb diets are ill-advised as they create metabolic lag, a catabolic state that eats up muscle, and makes it hard to thing straight, or train hard.
Many folks, especially fat asses, are just too lazy to study what's going on with the machine, and repeat bad behavior.
At understanding of the glycemic index is crucial to anyone serious about their body composition and training performance.
If you're physically active, you'll need more carbs. Some folks have genetic markers that slightly alter the way they respond, but, in general, small meals often, with slow carbs (fast carbs after workout) cause a blood sugar level with less deviation.
