As your preferred source of energy, the function of carbohydrates is to fuel the body.

This is why many people who go on severe low carbohydrate diets often become very lethargic. Just like with protein, one gram of carbohydrates contains 4 calories. But one of the most important things to be aware of is the glycemic index of any given carbohydrate. The glycemic index is a numerical rating given to every carbohydrate food that determines how quickly insulin is released in the bloodstream whenever you eat that food. Lower glycemic foods cause a much slower insulin spike, while high glycemics create a faster, greater release of insulin in the bloodstream when eaten. The glycemic index is used by diabetics to make sure that their insulin levels are appropriate throughout the day. Examples of low gylcemic foods include a lot of fruits: apples, peaches, grapes, any type of berry, pears, apricots. Other ones include slow-cooking oatmeal, yams, lentils, and most green vegetables. Examples of high glycemic carbohydrates are generally in the starchy category: breads, pasta, rice, white potato, carrots, corn, and fruits like pineapple and bananas.

Now you might be saying that every diet you have ever seen tells you to eat rice, potatoes, rice cakes–many of the foods in the high glycemic category. The problem is that those diets fail to recognize the insulin response to those foods. While they may be okay calorically (and may even be low in fat), these high glycemic foods are not good choices from a weight loss perspective either. You see, high glycemic foods frustrate your fat burning capability. In the presence of elevated insulin levels in your bloodstream, it is very difficult–if not impossible–for your body to burn and metabolize fat. So, be sure to choose the majority of your carbohydrates from the low glycemic category. The only point in the day that I would consider eating high glycemic index carbohydrates is the meal that immediately follows your workout, if you do one, as there is an indication that the body prefers them at this time to aid recuperation.

So, how many carbohydrates should you eat? This largely depends on your nutritional goals and your activity levels. One thing I would caution against is dropping your number of carbohydrates under 50 grams. Your brain requires at least 50 grams per day in order to function properly. Additionally, severely limiting carbohydrates raises the risk of dehydration, lack of energy and fatigue, and could also negatively impact other health issues.

When you eat carbohydrates, your body naturally produces a hormone called
insulin.

To put it in simple terms, insulin and HGH do not get along so well. When your body realizes that insulin is in the bloodstream, it will not release HGH until the insulin goes away. Here is the problem with doing that close to bedtime. You naturally get a burst of HGH in the first hours of sleep. If you eat carbs close to bedtime, this will increase the insulin in your bloodstream and your HGH release will be limited. You do not want that. Cut the carbs out a few hours before bedtime.

 Let’s take a look at what HGH can do for us as we get older:

Although HGH’s main function is to promote growth in childhood, HGH is still important once adulthood is reached. In adults as well as in children, HGH helps regulate metabolism — a critical chemical process through which the body turns food into energy, tissue or waste products. HGH assists in transporting molecules, conserving sugars, building proteins, and breaking down fats. Not only is the HGH produced in your body vital to maintaining healthy body composition, it also contributes to proper bone density, heart muscle function, and ratios of “good” to “bad” cholesterol, all of which are important to reduce the risk of such conditions as high cholesterol and osteoporosis.

The presence of insulin in the bloodstream has been shown to be an antagonist of HGH in the bloodstream. What this means is that the higher the insulin levels are in your bloodstream, the more suppressed your natural HGH levels may be. Basically, insulin and HGH do not co-exist well in the bloodstream: the more of one, the less of the other. When you eat high glycemic foods, more insulin is shot into the bloodstream. This could limit the your natural production of HGH which is the opposite of what we want to do. So the
answer to this dilemma is to eat the bulk of your carbohydrates from the low glycemic index category. Examples of low gylcemic foods include a lot of fruits: apples,
peaches, grapes, any type of berry, pears, apricots. Other ones include slow-cooking oatmeal, yams, lentils, and most green vegetables.

 Myfit.ca has an interesting take on HGH:

In this day and age, it seems that more and more women and young teens are starving themselves to be in the current “skinny mode”. Why is this happening?

In this overly commercially orientated world, with skinny models all over the world, and people trying to emulate that “look”, I am quite sure it started with Twiggy, in the 1960’s. I think Twiggy was smart. She looked at her skinny little frame and realized that she was not like most girls, so instead of hiding herself she flaunted it.

So…..what if you could burn fat without dieting or exercising; increase your muscle mass without exercise; improve your sexual drive and performance; enhance your athletic performance and endurance; have younger, tighter, thicker skin; eliminate cellulite; dramatically support truly refreshing deep sleep; build stronger bones; alleviate menopause and male “andropause”; improve your cholesterol and triglyceride profiles; strengthen your heart while lowering blood pressure; even improve your hair growth and texture; improve mood, memory and concentration; strengthen your immune system; and likely add years to your life?

Well… with HGH enhancements you can. Over 28,000 medical studies say you can!

Does what you eat affect your HGH levels? Yesterday’s post on HGH and late night snacking answers that question with an emphatic yes, but what you eat all day, not just before bedtime, can have a big impact on your natural HGH levels. And the type of food that most impacts your HGH levels are carbohydrates. As it turns out, some carbs have little impact on human growth hormone output and others can all but shut the natural HGH faucet off. 

What many people do not realize is that the types of carbohydrates they choose to eat can limit the secretion of HGH in the bloodstream. There are indications that when you produce less HGH in the body, you are more likely to experience the negative effects of aging. One of the goals of any anti-aging nutrition program is to teach you to eat in a way that will hopefully maximize your natural HGH levels. Now back to how this affects what carbohydrates you eat: The presence of insulin in the bloodstream has been shown to be an antagonist of HGH in the bloodstream. What this means is that the higher the insulin levels are in your bloodstream, the more suppressed your natural HGH levels may be. Basically, insulin and HGH do not co-exist well in the bloodstream: the more of one, the less of the other. When you eat high glycemic foods, more insulin is shot into the bloodstream. This could limit the your natural production of HGH which is the opposite of what we want to do. So the answer to this dilemma is to eat the bulk of your carbohydrates from the low glycemic index category. 

There is an all natural HGH product with a program that includes special reports on anti-aging, nutrition, and fitness, including a specific report on how to eat to naturally boost natural human growth hormone levels. The exerpt above was from one of these reports, and best of all, it is FREE!

Late night snacking is part of our culture. Why do you think fast food restaurants are open till 3 am or even all night long? But did you know that satisfying those late night cravings can have a very negative effect on your natural HGH levels and output? When you first go to sleep, your body enjoys its greatest release of natural HGH and eating the wrong foods before bed can limit or even shut that HGH release down, which is actually the last thing you want to do.

Studies show that fasting prior to sleep can heighten sleep-related HGH output. Therefore, based on all the evidence in both the sleeping and waking state, going to bed with a belly-full of carbs is hormonally unwise and may diminish, if not nullify, nighttime HGH release.

Also, allowing ample time after consuming carbohydrates before retiring to bed will help maximize nighttime HGH release. Therefore, to enhance growth hormone output, refrain from consuming carbohydrates within 90 minutes of going to bed.
