More carbs please! The very best to eat if you want to lose weight

For years people had been assuming that in order to lose weight then they needed to eliminate carbohydrates from their diet.

It was a tough time for everyone, and ultimately ended up leading to people cutting out some of their favourite foods for no reason.

While cutting down on the white breads and white rice will be beneficial in terms of removing the refined grains that are low in nutrients will be a good thing in the long run, you also need whole grains.

Especially if your going to exercising more frequently. So, the next time someone misguidedly tells you that carbs are going to ruin your weight-loss efforts, you grab one of these snacks and laugh your way in the opposite direction because carbs are glorious and you don’t need that negativity in your life.

Quinoa

Twice as much fibre as other grains to help speed up your metabolism

Chickpeas

Try roasting them for snack that's tasty and filled with protein

Sweet potatoes

Less fat that their white counterparts and also tasty.

Popcorn

According to studies popcorn makes people feel more satisfied and less hungry than people who snacked on something like say, a bag of Taytos.

Oats

Complex carbs will fill you up and make sure you're not missing out on any of the goodnees, just don't go overboard adding toppings that you would normally find in the biscuit tin.
