The Truth About Carbs

Regarding diets and losing weight, carbohydrates have a bad reputation or have been confusing people. Carbs are essential ~ they are the body's main source of energy.

The best approach to a balanced, healthy diet is to get your carbs from unprocessed foods such as veggies, beans (legumes), whole grains and even dairy products. In addition to carbohydrates, these healthy foods have many other nutrients and fiber, which helps to lower cholesterol levels and keeps us feeling full.

If you are craving comfort foods, eat an organic baked potato (stuff with hummus, veggies, or eat bare, but make sure to eat the skin ~ skip the sour cream or butter.) You will not only get a good dose of healthy carbs but alos lots of fiber, vitamin C and potassium. Or try roasting sweet potatoes, which will give you a good dose of vitamin A.  Carbohydrates that are high in fiber, are the best combination as the fiber helps to regulate the body’s absorption of glucose, and in turn regulates insulin levels.  Eating a high starch, natural food and its attached fiber (baked potato and skin) is far healthier than eating the starch alone.

If you are craving sweets, reach for fresh fruit to satify your sweet tooth and avoid unecessary empty calories (desserts typically have loads of refined carbs, fat and almost no nutritional value.)

Stay away from processed items such as sugar, white bread, white pastas, desserts and pastries. It is very important to note that “bad carbohydrates” are often unhealthy because they are very high in saturated fat and sugar, not just that they are high in carbohydrate.
