Eat Carbs Burn Fat

carbsYou’ve eliminated carbs from your diet and lost a whole bunch of weight. Now what? What happens after you start eating carbs again? You blow up. I’m feeling a bit sassy today because I love carbs and they account for about 30%-35% of my daily intake. I feel sadness when I think of anyone not eating them. And so I wrote this post which will help you learn the difference between Simple Carbs and Complex Carbs. One makes you fat while the other helps you burn fat. Let’s put this myth to rest! Share this post & don’t forget to comment your thoughts below!

SIMPLE CARBOHYDRATES

Simple carbohydrates are basically sugar. Your body digests them almost instantly. They quickly shoot your glucose levels up then your glucose levels quickly shoot down. You are left hungry, energy crashing and craving more of it. This is frequently how sugar addictions begin.  Your simple carbs are: white rice, white bread, high fructose corn syrup, sugary cereals, soda, fruit drinks, white sugar, candy & artificial syrups.

COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATES

Complex carbohydrates have: fiber. Your body needs fiber to aid digestion so 1/4 of your dish during main meals should consist of a complex carbohydrate. It takes the body longer to digest complex carbohydrates so glucose levels do not quickly shoot up and down. This helps regulate insulin levels. You stay energized and full because of this reason.  Your complex carbs are:sweet potato, oatmeal, brown rice, quinoa, beans, lentils, peas, corn and pumpkin.

So stop being simple! Make sure your carbohydrates are complex. This will give you sustained energy to crush your workouts and fiber to aid digestion.

  1. Life without carbs , no thanks. I have tried low carbing but as you said, it all piles back on once you eat normally.
