How To Eat Carbs …
When it comes to carb intake there are four things you need to monitor in order to keep your body burning fat and never gain fat from eating your favorite carbs.
I call it the Carb-Quatro technique.
Just manage these four things on how to eat carbs:
1- Carb choices: Always do your best to choose clean car bs based on your activity level. Simply put:
...wrong carbs = store belly fat
…right carbs = burn belly fat.
See chart below for details and guidelines.
2- Carb timing: Always try to consume impact carbs 3 to 4 hours before high intensity exercise or 1 to 3 hours after high intensity exercise if your goal is fat-loss.
Bonus Tip: If you know you’re gonna eat high-carb cheat food, try to perform 100 reps of pushups, pull-ups, bodyweight squats, burpees, or other bodyweight movements about a half hour to an hour before the cheat.
This will greatly minimize fat-spillover by bringing Glut4 (glucose transporter)
to the surface of muscle tissue and help shuttle and/or transport the extra
calories into muscle tissue.
3- Carb combinations: If you continuously and obsessively “snack” on processed carbs you’ll constantly be in a fat-storing environment from sky-high insulin levels.
So always combine your impact carbs (starches and fruits) with complete protein whenever possible and NEVER eat a high sugar carb by itself.

If you do decide to snack on carbs, make sure you read this Special Report on how to eat carbs so you can minimize the damage.
4- Carb portion control: A fist sized portion of impact carbs is always a great rule to follow if your goal is fat-loss.
If you’re trying to gain muscle, it’s always best to double or even triple your carb servings in your post workout window.
But remember, this is for post-workout ONLY.
Every other time of the day your goal should be to keep blood sugar and insulin under control as much as humanly possible to stay healthy and keep your body burning fat.
The new science-based method at the link below uncovers a proven and effective way for you to “fix” your blood sugar and take control of your insulin once and for all:
Now if you’re sedentary, the rules totally change.
You need to be even more conscious about blood sugar control because your metabolic and hormonal need for carb intake is MUCH less than somebody who exercises.
This means every time you eat your favorite carbs, you’re more likely to gain fat than somebody who exercises.
That’s why I created this Carb Control Chart below.
It will help you differentiate different carb selection based on your personal activity level.

So remember, if you’re sedentary, go ahead and eat like a caveman and follow the Paleolithic eating approach as much as possible.
But if you’re using ANY type of high intensity exercise, the pure glucose from starches and certain fruits can help you…
– Build more lean muscle
– Boost metabolic rate
– Raise thyroid output (T4 to T3 conversion) production
– Improve leptin sensitivity
– Improve the free testosterone to estrogen ratio
– Increase insulin sensitivity
All of this will help you burn more lower stomach fat and it’s crucial to help with recovery, hormone levels, and insulin sensitivity for high intensity exercisers.
But you have to be careful and make sure you KEEP your blood sugar stable 95% of your day or you’ll live your life in a fat-storing environment.
In fact, elevated insulin and out-of-control blood sugar is the primary cause of obesity and belly fat plaguing our world today.
But science has recently uncovered 4 healthy ingredients that have been PROVEN to help you control blood sugar and minimize the release of insulin.
You can learn exactly what they are along with how science proves they work to keep your body in a fat- burning environment at this link:
In fact, this simple carb-fighting “ritual” is clinically proven to:
– Lower your blood sugar
– Increase insulin sensitivity
– Decrease fat storage
– Increase fat burning
Even better, you can perform it in just a few seconds…
and it’s PROVEN to work like gangbusters day after day:
Have a great Thursday,
