Carbohydrates(carbs) are vital because they produce energy for our bodies; and keep us from being zombies. Never before has the United States seen such a ridiculous diet trend as the "low-carb" phenomenon. Thousands of restaurants, grocery stores, and brands have spent millions marketing and creating "low- carb" foods; everyone has decided to capitalize on this trend whether it's healthy or NOT! When we eat food, our bodies turn those carbs into glucose which is stored for use.
Stay away from simple carbs; they are mostly made up of sugar, which releases to quickly, and causes "high". This tends to leave people hungry. But you really need to stick with complex carbs, they are comprised of starch and fiber and they release gradually, therefore you leave full and UNhungry!
Simple carbs-white flour, white pasta, white rice, and white sugar (see a pattern? Manufacturers refine these foods ssooo much that in the end they are a beneficial to our bodies as toliet paper! Ladies BEWARE!)
Complex (Good) Carbs- Anything that is natural and hasn't been refined so that it completely effs up our bodies.
Honey, if you want to lose weight, I suggest staying away from diary(milk sole purpose is to turn a 90 pound calf into a 2,00 pound cow.... Stay away, unless of course you want to gain weight), meat(don't ask me where you get your protein, if I had 10 cents for every meat head that asked me that, I'd be wealthier than Oprah! They are called Fruits and Vegetables! Duh!), all sodas (aka LIQUID SATAN), and Junk food.
Hope this helped!
