Carbohydrate intake, as already described, interferes with fat catabolism.
The fewer carbohydrates consumed, the greater the reduction of insulin which would otherwise tend to conserve fat and waste muscle and vital organs. Elevated insulin would also increase the sense of hunger, leading towards treatment failure: the patient would suffer and resign to the temptation to cease the diet. Of course we cannot completely eliminate carbohydrates. There are small amounts of carbohydrates in the KEN™ solution and in some prescriptions that the patient may take. It’s important that any carbohydrates taken are of a type slowly absorbed. Prescription tablets containing small amounts of carbohydrates that are absorbed slowlyare prefrred to the same drugs taken in the form of a soluble powder or soluble tablets contain a quantity of sweeteners that are absorbed more rapidly and therefore are more at risk of stimulating insulin.
