Carbohydrate Intolerance (CI) happens when people’s bodies are unable to properly metabolize the amount of carbohydrates they consume. Take the following survey to figure out if you are carbohydrate intolerant.
- Do you experience poor concentration or sleepiness after meals?
- Do you experience intestinal discomfort after meals? Especially Gas or Bloating.
- Do you have polycystic ovaries? (Ovarian cysts).
- Are you often hungry between or soon after meals?
- Are you often fatigued? Once per week or more.
- Do you sleep poorly? Don’t sleep uninterrupted for 7-9 hours.
- Has your waist increased with age? Clothing fits tighter. Larger waist at bellybutton.
- Do you have a low-fat or low-protein diet?
- Do you crave sweets or caffeine daily?
- Do you have a personal or family history of chronic disease? Heart disease, stroke, cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, etc.
Count the “YES” answers to the above questions. If you have 2 or more YES answers, you are at a higher risk for CI. If you have less than 2 YES answers, you are at a lower risk for CI.
A higher level of risk doesn’t mean that you have a serious health condition. It means that due to your present situation (lifestyle, health, and habits), you are in danger of having a health condition associated with that risk factor
