The facts about carbohydrates (carb) and overall health are still being researched. New science-based facts are being are being found every day. A recent study comparing high protein to high carbohydrates shows that a carb diet is sometimes better than a high protein diet.
Getting rid of those unwanted pounds and having a healthier life is not about proteins or carbs. The real difference for having a healthier life is about eating good carbs and avoiding bad carbs. We are what we eat!
Studies show that some carbs are destructive to good health while some are extremely good for your health. Without going through all the does and don'ts of this conundrum can be summed up by composing your diet with real food and avoiding bad carbs.
Good carbs are those that appear the same as they did when they were harvested. Whole oranges are better than orange juice etcetera. The more thee carbs are processed the less healthy they are for consumption. Bad carbs have been altered in their processing by removing fiber and nutrients followed by adding salt, sugar, calories and fat. Potatoes are a great food source but potato chips and French fries are not. We need to eat natural foods like strawberries, oats, brown rice and whole grain products. Fresh tomatoes and herbs are fine but avoid canned sauces.
Consume good carbs that are beneficial to your health such as fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains like barley, oats, brown rice, quinoa and starchy vegetables like potatoes, corn, and yams as well as the family of legumes like black beans, peas, and pinto beans. Avoid eating foods like full-fat dairy products - butter and cheeses and processed products that are full of fat, salt or sugar. It is best to eat a high fiber diet which helps lower blood sugar and insulin levels as well as LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol).
A proper diet of good carbs can lead to good health and a great body. With a proper diet, research has found that good health can be restored in a very short period of time. Emphasize eating good carbs - unrefined whole foods like fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, whole grains, and beans along with some daily exercise. You will experience extraordinary benefits like lower LDL's, lower blood pressure, lower blood sugar levels and loss of weight. Do not starve yourself, eat the right carbs and eat until you are satisfied.
