So you suspect you’re sensitive to carbohydrates in your diet (some call it carb intolerant).
Well, you may be on to something.
Science is starting to reveal carb tolerance variations from one person to the next, and it all starts in your mouth.
Salivary amylase is an enzyme in your saliva that starts the digestion of starches in carbohydrates. The gene that makes amylase, AMY1, varies in number from person to person. The more of it you have, the faster and more effectively you digest carbs.
Researchers compared the genes of 149 Swedish families that included siblings with a body mass index (BMI) differing by more than 10 kg/m2. The single biggest factor determining variations in BMI from one individual to the next was the volume of AMY1 in their saliva.
What’s the fat loss trick for those with fewer copies of the gene?
Be present at meal time, eat as slowly as possible and really take your time at each meal.
Simple in theory, sure, but eating slowly gives your amylase more time to break down the carbs you’re eating. This evens the playing field vs. people with more amylase who eat faster.
BONUS TRICK: According to research presented at the American Chemical Society’s national meeting, cooking rice using coconut oil and a refrigerator can slash calories by as much as 60%. By testing out 38 different kinds of rice and simulating human digestion in a test tube, they devised a recipe for the least caloric way to cook rice: drop a teaspoon of coconut oil into boiling water, then add half a cup of non-fortified white rice and cook it for about 40 minutes. After cooking, stick it in the fridge for 12 hours. Rice cooked this way as a lot more resistant starch (no calories). Feel free to warm up in a microwave for later consumption, re-heating has no negative impact.
