Carb Overload? Find Out What Your Triglycerides Reveal About Your Diet!

What Your Triglycerides Say About Your Diet

Let's dive into something super important: your blood work, especially those numbers called triglycerides. Think of triglycerides like a secret code that tells you if you're eating the right amount of carbs or way too many. I'm here to make it easy to understand, just like I did with one of my clients.

What are Triglycerides? What do high triglycerides mean?

So, here's the deal. Triglycerides are a type of fat in your blood, and their levels can tell us a lot about what you eat. A healthy level is usually between 0 and 149, but the sweet spot? That's around 100. Now, if you peek at your blood work and see a number higher than 100, especially over 149, it's like a big red flag waving at you, saying, "Hey, you might be eating too many carbs!"

How Do Carbs Turn into Triglycerides?

Wondering why carbs matter? Let me break it down for you. When you eat a lot of carbs, like bread or pasta, your body turns those carbs into sugar. This sugar then travels in your blood and ends up in your liver. Your liver, acting like a little factory, turns this sugar into triglycerides. This process is pretty tiring for your body and can even make you feel exhausted.

Too Many Carbs = Too Many Triglycerides

If your triglyceride levels are high, like over 100, it's a sign that there might be too much sugar cruising through your blood. This isn't just about numbers; it's about your health. High triglycerides can be a warning sign that you need to watch your carb intake.

What can you do? First, get your blood work done. Look specifically at your triglycerides. If they're in the ideal range, awesome! If not, it might be time to cut back on those carbs. Remember, your body works hard to manage all that sugar, and too much can be a burden.
