Pop Quiz: Are you Carb-Sensitive?
Testing your body's response to carbs is easy--all you have to do is
eat. Scarf the following high-carb breakfast, then record how you feel.
To make the test as effective as possible, eat within 2 hours of rolling
out of bed, and don't work out beforehand (exercise aids the metabolism
of carbs). Repeat the test once to confirm results.
The High-Carb Breakfast
Spread 1 large plain (about 4 ounces) with 2 tablespoons of
no-sugar-added preserves or jam. After your last bite, fill out the
chart below every 30 minutes using these guidelines:
1Extremely,2Very,3Somewhat,4Not at all
How full do you feel?
How happy do you feel?
How energetic do you feel?
How easy is it to stay focused?
Scoring Your Test
Add up your score for each half-hour increment. If your total is more
than 10 for any of the intervals before the 2-hour mark, you have poor
carbohydrate tolerance. Follow the Carb-Sensitive Diet in our Perfect Body Diet book. If your total
score is below 10 for most time periods, you have good carbohydrate
tolerance and should follow the Carb-Friendly Diet. If your scores are
below 10 until the 2-hour mark and then increase or hover right around
10, you fall somewhere in the middle. Try the Carb-Friendly Diet. It
allows a wider variety of foods, including brown rice and more fruit,
and you'll still lose weight.
