Let me tell you something... this is true! When I have consumed too many carbs (like this Valentine's week!), I look like a whole different person! Even my eyes look swollen. I remember getting an id card renewed about a week before I was supposed to visit friends. I must have been eating carbs non-stop. I looked like a moon! I took the week to really flush out and take it to lean protein. It helped in the photos immensely.
I just wish I knew how long it takes to get that insulin reaction out of your body and what you can do to accelerate the process.
