parasympathetic carbs

Carbs are parasympathetic and thus low carb diets are often recommended for those whose nervous systems display parasympathetic dominance.

my question is since low carb diets are literally magic for those who respond well to them such as myself (completely life changing) by a process of balancing the sympathetic parasympathetic nervous system then what would be the problem with exercise on a low carb diet for people whose nervous system is balanced out by a low carb diet.

They still must have low glycogen or no?

Do they just have better adaptations for meat than the carbo sympathetic types????? can't wait for replys to this one....

My thoughts exactly, Beth. The world is overpopulated with all these parasympathetic dominanted people. I think I've known one in 56 years.:)

Interesting articles, Lucas. I took a metabolic typing test on Dr Mercola's site many years ago. The test results suggested that I would do well on high high fat and low carb. I have found this to be very true in my case. I have always been drawn to fatty foods and seem to need no carbs. Carbs just don't work well for me at all. I get more than enough protein and actually look for ways to cut down on protein while increasing fat intake.

You got me ... this sounds like woo. Carbs are parasympathetic? Really? Love to hear more about where this idea comes from.

I'm also skeptical that there are lots of folks running around in the modern world displaying "parasympathetic dominance" (unless they have other things going on like depression).

Got any pointers for those of us who don't know what you're talking about?

I don't think there are many people here who follow this particular typing system and thought. I'll admit I've never heard of such a thing and after reading through these articles, the science and logic looks awfully fuzzy to me.

If this has worked for you, great! Just remember, your metabolism is controlled by much more than your ANS, and if you truly feel that your parasympathetic responses are out of whack then you may want to have your endocrine function assessed.
