What is carb sensitivity, really?

I keep seeing this being mentioned often but have no clue what it really is.

Personally I can't take too much carbs cuz it bloats me up, makes me lightheaded, and usually my appetite for carbs is quite small.

Does that mean I'm carb sensitive too?

:help:

To me someone who is carb sensitive cannot eat many carbs becasue they become fat.

insulin resistance. carb sensitivity, in some people leads to insulin resistance. meaning your body needs to produce more insulin to set off the recptors that open cells so the insulin can shuttle in glucose. (first brain, then to muscles, then to adipose tissue, once glycogen stores are full). insulin also prohibits fat cells from opening up and letting fat out for fuel. therefore the more insulin you have lfoating aorund in your bloodstream, the less fat you can burn off.

that's the quick and dirty.

Unfortunately, insulin is also highly anabolic

that is why everyone bulks/cuts
