Hi viewers and welcome back to Bestie!
With the low carb craze going strong, high
carb bread seems to be slowly making an exit
out of people’s diets.
Now before we move ahead, let’s clear up
one thing, when we say “bread” we’re
talking the kind that’s made from refined
wheat like whi e bread.
These breads are heavily processed and contain
hardly any natural ingredients.
Thousands of people have been sharing information
about what’s changed in their lives since
they’ve decided to quit eating flour-based
products like bread.
And the positive results speak for themselves.
In today’s video, we will tell you what
would happen if you stopped eating bread for
a month.
From reduced illness, more energy, improved
digestion, weight loss to clearer skin and
more, watch till the end to learn about all
of them.
You’ll have more energy: Remember the last
time you ate that big sub for lunch and were
dying for a cat nap?
Many of you may be familiar with this afternoon
slump and the reason why you often crave a
nap after eating bread is because of the heavy
dose of carbs that you get from it.
Here’s something to keep in mind when it
comes to carbs: They trigger the release of
feel-good brain chemicals that help us to
relax.
So when you eat high carb food like bread,
you tend to become more relaxed, and even
sleepy.
In addition to that, bread is a high glycemic
food and these are notorious for causing blood
sugar levels to spike.
Now, this rapid rise in blood sugar may initially
make you feel more energetic, but when its
level goes down, you’ll find yourself feeling
very tired due to energy crash.
Do you suffer from an afternoon slump after
a carb heavy meal?
What do you do to deal with it?

You’ll Lose Water Weight: When you reduce
your carb intake, the first thing you notice
is how quickly, even magically, the weight
falls off.
But it’s not fat you’re losing, it’s
water.
When carbs are stored in the body in the form
of glycogen, each gram of carbohydrates stores
three to four times its weight in water.
So as soon as you cut carbs and start using
your glycogen stores, you’ll lose a good
amount of water weight.
You Might Feel Like You Have The Flu: Ever
heard of something called the low-carb or
‘keto flu’?
Yeah, it’s a real thing—and it’s not
fun.
When you cut down on carbs significantly,
you might deal with flu-like symptoms like
drowsiness, achiness, and nausea.
A lot of these issues have to do with your
brain, which typically uses tons of glucose
because it has so many nerve cells.
When your brain doesn’t have enough glucose
to run full-steam-ahead, but hasn’t transitioned
to using fat, your nerve cells don’t function
properly and you feel terrible.
Plus, people on low-carb diets often lose
out on electrolytes like sodium and potassium,
which can lead to some of those flu-like symptoms,
as well as issues like heart palpitations
and muscle cramps.
The low-carb flu should subside once you’re
a few days into ketosis.
But if you’re not quite low-carb enough
to make the shift , symptoms might stick around.
You’ll Have a Reduced Risk of Various Illnesses:
Bread is made up of anti-nutrients like gliadin
and glutenin.
Not only do they not provide any benefit to
your health, they literally attack your body
as you eat.
In fact, nobody’s digestive system is equipped
to properly handle gluten.
Although a certain number of people are diagnosed
to have gluten allergies, these people are
just more sensitive to it than others.
Our bodies do not have the enzymes to break
it down.
It all depends upon how well our intestinal
walls close after we eat it and how our immune
system reacts to it.
Wheat contains compounds which can increase
your risk of leaky gut syndrome by increasing
intestinal permeability.
Furthermore, avoiding bread will further reduce
your risk of chronic inflammation and joint
pain.
So, cutting it out of your diet can significantly
reduce your risk of chronic illnesses.
You Won’t Have As Many Cravings: Refined
wheat bread is devoid of any nutritional value,
thanks to the manufacturing process.
It is stripped bare of any nutrient-rich wheat
bran and germ.
This is why your body finds it easy to digest
and convert into glucose.
This can cause your energy levels to spike.
Your body doesn’t really get any nutrition
or fiber from eating bread.
This, along with your glucose levels dipping
low, can make you feel hungry more often.
So, avoiding bread can stop you from craving
more simple carbs and unhealthy snacks throughout
the day.
In fact, it would be best to replace bread
with plenty of fruits, vegetables, and the
occasional complex carb to keep you feeling
full until the next meal arrives.
You’ll Lose Weight: As every person who’s
ever been on a diet ever knows, bread is one
of the biggest enemies of weight loss.
The first piece of advice your dietitian will
give you is to stop eating refined white bread.
This is because the high level of refined
carbohydrates in bread makes your body retain
water weight which can make you feel bloated
and heavy.
So when you stop eating it, the pounds will
come off naturally – especially around your
waist.
It’s because refined grains are one of the
main causes of excess belly fat.
Not only will you look great, but you’ll
also feel great.
Improved Digestion: People who eat a lot of
bread tend to have digestion issues.
Gluten, in general, is very hard on the digestive
system and can cause bloating, diarrhea, vomiting,
and stomach cramps.
People, who may not think that they are allergic
to gluten, may have gluten sensitivities that
make regular digestion difficult.
If your digestive system isn’t functioning
properly, you can have a hard time losing
weight or even develop certain diseases due
to toxic build-up.
Clearer Skin: You’ve most likely heard the
saying “beauty starts from the inside out.”
Well, there is also a similar saying in the
health and wellness community which goes:
“what happens on the inside of your body
will be directly mirrored on your skin.”
Bottom line is that your diet is going to
be the number one factor that affects your
overall skin health.
So,if your goal is healthy and glowing skin,
you must make it a top priority to maintain
a healthy diet that is rich in key skin nutrients.
That understood, oftentimes people don’t
even realize that they do have a dietary sensitivity
to wheat and gluten, which are both found
in many varieties of bread.
And in the case of wheat intolerance and gluten
sensitivity, the symptoms can range from mild
bloating to more bothersome symptoms like
chronic acne.
Now fortunately, in the case of conditions
like wheat intolerance and gluten sensitivity,
the solution is very simple – avoid bread
altogether!
Your Workouts May Suffer: Carbohydrates are
your body’s primary source of energy for
fueling all exercise, including both endurance
and resistance training.
Cutting carbs will result in your energy levels
dropping significantly.
Decreasing the levels of your body’s stored
carbohydrates will lower your ability to produce
force and power.
And the suckier your workouts, the suckier
will be your results.
You Might Get Anxious: The feeling of anxiety
is something that happens once you eliminate
carbs from your diet.
This is because carbs increase the brain’s
levels of the feel-good chemical, serotonin.
So once you cut carbs, your psychological
state goes all along with it.
The less serotonin you pump out, the more
likely you are to feel bummed out.
Your brain uses carbs as fuel for everything,
including exercise, both endurance and resistance
work out.
And reducing it can lead to a major drop in
energy levels, and lesser workout means lesser
serotonin production.

Now back to what happens when you stop eating
bread for a month.
You might have bad breath: A lot of people
who follow a low-carb diet into ketosis report
bad breath.
Those ketones that are fueling your body at
this point are released, also, through your
breath.
Additionally, during the first stage of the
low-carb diet, as you lose water weight, you
can develop dry mouth.
That makes for stinky breath, too.
Even if the dry mouth goes away, the halitosis
caused by quitting bread won't.
The only way to counter this bad breath is
to drink a lot of water or to chew parsley.
Bad breath can also be a sign of GERD, diabetes
or gum disease.
Lower Cholesterol Levels: Whole wheat bread
has been found to increase bad cholesterol
by up to 60 percent over a 12 week period.
This has been linked to various heart conditions,
including heart disease.
This surprising statistic is the result of
high amounts of wheat and flour in most bread
types, which have been directly linked to
an increase in cholesterol levels.
Bread has the ability to raise cholesterol
levels without technically being high in fat
content.
In fact, it's impact on bad cholesterol levels
is currently igniting a debate between nutritionists
and other medical professionals.
Some nutritionists continue to argue that
fat has the most significant impact on bad
cholesterol levels, while research continues
to be produced that indicates otherwise.
Lower Diabetes Risk: Refined carbs in bread
increase the levels of fatty acid that increase
the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Eating whole grains on the other hand can
improve blood-cholesterol levels and lowers
the risk of heart disease, stroke, obesity,
and type 2 diabetes.
How many times in a week do you eat bread?
Do you prefer having it for breakfast, lunch
or dinner?
Is it always the healthy ones?
