Truth: There is NO such thing as an essential carbohydrate!
That statement is 100% factual and non-debatable, but let’s be honest, the carb community hates it and will try to come up with every scenario in the book to make it not true. But it’s as “they” like to say science.
Now let’s dissect the statement.
It doesn’t say they you shouldn’t eat carbohydrates.
It doesn’t say you can’t be healthy if you choose to eat carbohydrates.
It doesn’t even say carbohydrates are BAD for you.
All it states is that there is NOT an essential carbohydrate, so carbohydrate consumption is unnecessary for survival.
Let me explain further and help with the science of how the body actually works in real life and not on social media.
Your body does NEED glucose to survive, but that glucose does not need to be ingested in the form of a carbohydrate.
The body has elegant mechanisms that allow it to utilize non-carbohydrate substrates to generate glucose.
This process is called Gluconeogenesis.
Gluconeogenesis is a metabolic pathway in which the liver produces glucose from non-carbohydrate substrates, including glucogenic amino acids (from protein) and glycerol (from lipids).
WOW ~ right!
Now let’s get back to the statement’s keyword, ESSENTIAL.
There are essential fatty acids (FAT) and essential amino acids (PROTEIN) that, if you do not ingest, you will die.
The term essential fatty acids refers to those polyunsaturated fatty acids that must be provided by foods because these cannot be synthesized in the body yet are necessary for survival.
They are Linoleic acid and Alpha Linolenic acid.
There are nine essential amino acids that you must get through your diet — histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. They’re vital for functions throughout your body, including protein synthesis, tissue repair, and nutrient absorption ~ AKA: LIFE
