so i was asked a question earlier today that got me thinking. its sounds horrible, but i didn’t know how to answer it.
the question was what would the side effects be for eating carbs for 1 week, nothing else, just carbs.
it sounds really illogical and i told the person that that wouldn’t be healthy and they should eat a well-balanced diet, but they kept asking why and why and i drawed blanks on how to answer, so i told the person i would get back to them. so here i am…[/quote]
You hang out with idiots. Who cares if some dipshit you know wants to only eat carbs for a week? Guess what? There are no life threatening consequences from taking in mostly carbs for a week (no chance they will ONLY take in carbs unless they plan on only drinking water and maltodextrin powder).
Nothing amazingly bad is going to happen. It isn’t the smartest thing to do in terms of BODYBUILDING, but the majority of the general public is getting most of their intake from carbs and fats.
Your friend will be missing out on a shit load of nutrients and vitamins, but aside from general health, that’s about it.
