Transform Your Eating
Carbs Are Not From The Devil!
Are you one of those people who hears the word carbs and you automatically think, “those are bad?” Let me start by stating that all carbohydrates are not bad and your body needs them to survive and function properly. It makes a difference what kind of carbs you are eating and when are you eating them. See, most people are addicted to the wrong kinds of carbs like sweets and processed carbs. These kinds of carbs lack the nutritional value that you need but are high in calories to add to fat gain. The obvious carbs that are detrimental to your health and physique are the ones like soda, cookies, crackers, cakes, candies, etc. However, there are others that are silent assassins and are not so obvious like breads, pastas, and potatoes. These silent assassins are not horrible, but you can do better by making sure you are eating whole grain and whole wheat rather than white breads and pastas.
We always tell our clients that those silent assassin carbs are earned. If you want to eat those starchy carbs, you must exercise first and then only eat them after your workout.
Good carbs = high fiber and low glycemic Bad carbs = high in sugar with empty calories
Fruits Most breakfast cereals
Veggies Soda, fruit juices, bagels, muffins, crackers
Whole grain breads Sugary desserts, ice cream, doughnuts
Whole grain pasta
Whole grain rice
If you want to lose fat, then you must control your carbohydrate intake. We are not talking about a low-carb diet here. I am simply talking about being able to distinguish between a good carb and a bad carb and knowing when you should be eating them. Now, don’t forget that veggies and fruits are also carbs and that veggies are free game. Eat away! Starting today, you will only eat bad carbs on your “free” day, which we will talk about on Day 10. Also, you will only eat starchy carbs as a reward after exercising. If you don’t exercise, you will get your carbs from eating fruits and veggies.
