We believe at CCN through science that there are 6 essential nutrients, broken down into 3 macros and 3 micros. The 3 macros are CARBS, fat and protein. Whenever a program removes an entire essential nutrient or decreases it to minuscule amounts, that should be a huge red flag.
We think of fuel/calories in terms of exercise, but we actually need fuel all day every day to keep things running smoothly. Carbs are the most effective way to fuel bodily functions: hormone levels, regulating body temperature, digesting food, etc. If we go too long without them, we could potentially cause our livers and kidneys to work too hard borrowing "fuel" from them.
We eat carbs to fuel our brains and bodies and target fat cells. We keep the glucose in our bodies balanced and usable. We eat the right amounts to optimize nutrient absorption and keep our organs doing their jobs.
Trust us, everyone needs carbs - the right carbs! And when eaten along with protein and fat, carbs are for everyone.
