Extreme Swings In Bodyweight

Extreme swings in bodyweight are much more common on the high carb diet. You gain more fat, get bulkier and more puffed up. Then you've got to cut up, and Hell hath no fury like a bodybuilder cutting up and coming into a contest. With all that fat to take off, you've got enough problems without the irritability and mood swings that can come with the carb-based diet.

Endorphins and enkephalins are hormones in the body that are related to narcotics. They often come into play in pain reduction, and you might be aware of the endorphin rush and feeling of well being that can come to the athlete during extended endurance training and performance. Testosterone, growth hormone, and insulin all work to vary levels of endorphins and enkephalins in the body. In the carb-based diet, hormonal swings are so great, especially with insulin, that you'll find yourself on an endorphin and enkephalin roller coaster. Irritability and mood swings can be great. You'll find these swings far less dramatic and manageable on the Anabolic Diet.
