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.
