With the carbophobia craze in full effect and the keto diet stronger than ever should we eat carbs? Well as we talked about my last blog, yes you should…..as long as they are the right carbs.
So what exactly are the right carbs? Well for starters you want to avoid any carbs containing white flour, sugar, or that are heavy on the starch side. So avoid most cereals, white bread, white pastas, white rice etc.
You want to eat whole grains. Because when you eat something with refined white flour in it, the fiber and grain is taken out, thus making it very hard for your body to process it and put it to use, which then translates to added fat.
Stick to whole wheat breads, whole wheat pastas, brown or wild rice, red or sweet potatoes. Whole grain cereals, whole grain oats. All of these are amazing sources of energy and fuel that your body needs in order to lift strong and gain muscles. So don’t fear carbs, just eat the right kind.
