Insulin's second secretion frequently reduces blood sugar to the point that hypoglycemia occurs, as well as false hunger, which might lead to overeating.
Consequences of having excess carbohydrates

The cells in our body have a limited storage capacity. For a man weighing about 150 pounds, the storage capacity of his cells would be roughly 400 grams. Also, the reserves are depleted only after severe and prolonged physical activity, which is the equivalent of two hours of sprinting. Hence, the majority of the second round of glucose is rejected. When this happens, insulin takes the glucose to the liver, where it's most likely converted to triglycerides, a fatty acid that may be stored in the fat stores indefinitely. As a result, body fat is gained, with the possibility of more. Insulin's second secretion frequently reduces blood sugar to the point that hypoglycemia occurs, as well as false hunger, which might lead to overeating.

Aside from weight gain, eating too many carbohydrates regularly causes an issue. Because the cells are constantly attacked with the sugar that carbs turn into, they build resistance to insulin, the transporter. When this happens, fewer carbohydrates are stored as energy in the cells and more are transferred to the liver to be converted into triglycerides and stored as body fat. Even though the second production of insulin lowers blood sugar with every excessive carb meal, many people trapped in this vicious cycle feel hungrier and hungrier as they gain weight.
