Constant research has shown that having a low or non carb diet, can not only make it harder to lose weight but also causes long term health problems.
Ensure your meals contain at least some portions that are high in fibre. Not only will this help with digesting foods, will keep you fuller for longer and prevent you from snacking on bad foods.
Long term benefits
Studies have proven again and again, that adults who eat a diet high in fibre decrease their chances of getting heart disease and even colon cancer. So, eating more plant based carbohydrates can have great long term affects too.
Good carbs vs. bad carbs
Bad carbohydrates are foods that have been refined by removing all the nutrients from the grain e.g. white rice, white bread. While good carbs are full of fibre. They have not been processed and can be slowly digested into our system e.g. brown rice, fruits, vegetables, beans.
But most importantly, it’s all about moderation and having some good carbs can go a long way to a healthier diet and lifestyle.
