Eating carbs increases your blood sugar level. When the body detects a rise in blood sugar level, the pancreas produces insulin, which is a hormone thaat converts sugar (glucose) into an insoluble, storage form (glygogen). Alternatively, the sugar is converted to, and stored as, fats. Glygogen and fats are then used to raise the blood sugar level at times when it falls below normal.

Why does the blood sugar of a person with low carbohydrate diet remain stable?

Blood sugar stability has to do with what types of carbohydrates that someone eats. There's a tool called the glycemic index that rates carbohydrates on how they change blood sugar levels. Some carbohydrates are low on the glycemic index, meaning that they don't spike blood sugar, and they help blood sugar stay consistent for a long period of time (several hours). However, some types of carbohydrates will spike blood sugar and cause the body to need to release insulin to regulate the blood sugar. So a person on a low carb diet can remain stable if they are eating carbs from the low end of the glycemic index.

What carbs are the better ones to eat?

There's a tool called the glycemic index that rates carbohydrates on how they change blood sugar levels. Some carbohydrates are low on the glycemic index, meaning that they don't spike blood sugar, and they help blood sugar stay consistent for a long period of time (several hours). Eating carbs that are low on the glycemic index will aid in fat loss and prevent the body from storing fat. These are the healthiest types of carbohydrates. Foods high on the glycemic index will cause the body to need to release insulin to regulate the blood sugar. These will also cause dramatic shifts in energy, making someone feel tired and often causing the body to store away fat.
