Good Carbs vs. Bad Carbs

There has been so much confusion about good
carbs and bad carbs in recent years, I would like to clear up some of the
confusion for you, ideally setting you in the right direction for prolonged fat
loss success and healthy eating.
Firstly, I’m not a ‘low-carb’ follower - I definitely
do not think extremely low carb diets are healthy. However I do believe
that a major reason that the majority of people struggle to lose weight,
is due to the over-consumption of processed carbohydrates such as white bread,
cereal, pasta, rice, soft drinks, and candy bars (Just to name a few). The
‘Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle’ program is
excellent in this area, as part of the package details ‘foods that burn fat’
and ‘foods that turn into fat’, so I suggest you take a look at this.
If you are over-consuming a combination of
these types of refined and processed carbohydrates, it is increasingly
difficult to lose weight, regardless of how hard you work out.
Not only does the excess consumption of
carbohydrates cause large blood-sugar swings and insulin surges (stimulating
direct body fat storage), but it also increases your appetite and cravings.
Even carbohydrates that many people believe
are ‘healthy’ are excess calories that do not actually contain any significant
nutritional value. Where many brands of cereal and bread claim to be
‘whole grain’, the major ingredient used in them is refined flour - which
spikes your blood sugar to create an insulin surge. After many years of eating
excess refined carbohydrates it becomes harder for insulin to do it's job to
continue handling this blood sugar, and insulin resistance and eventual type 2
diabetes can occur in some people.
My opinion is that those people struggling to
reduce weight would get better results by:
Reducing overall excess ‘grain based’
food in your diet (for example: crackers, pasta, rice, crackers, cereal..) and
focus your diet more on free range, ‘grass fed’ meats and eggs, dairy, and a
majority of vegetables.
Instead of grains for most of your
carbohydrate intake, try to get your carbohydrates mostly from vegetables,
potatoes, and a variety of whole fruits (ie. NOT fruit juices, which remove
important nutrients in the fruit including the beneficial fiber).
If you are going consume grains, make
sure you focus on the most nutrient dense portions of the grain - the bran and
the germ. Therefore is it a healthier alternative to eat oat bran instead
of oat meal, and adding wheat germ and rice bran to your yoghurt, soups,
salads, cottage cheese, smoothies.. etc. This ensures that you will get all the
nutrient dense elements of the grain without the unnecessary excess
starches and calories.
If you are used to eating large
quantities of pasta, bread, cereals etc.. Replace these with healthy fats such
as nuts, avocados, seeds, guacamole, nut butters, and also healthy proteins
such as ‘grass fed’ meats, ‘grass fed’ dairy, and free-range eggs etc.. Healthy
fats and protein sources are really beneficial in controlling blood sugar and
hormone levels, satisfying your appetite, and helping you in making noticeable
progress on your lifelong weight loss.
