Tell tale signs of protein or carbo overload

The cells in your body are like little woodfires. If they burn too fast (too much carbohydrate for your type), it’s only a quick burst that soon peters out. If they burn too slowly (too much fat and protein), it’s a weak flame producing very little heat. Here are the likely responses with:
