Daily Fit 4/5/19: Good News About Carbs

good news about carbs


Wellness Tip Of The Day: Don’t ditch all carbs when giving your diet a makeover.

Why It Matters: For the longest time, you were told that carbs are simply “bad.” However, this is far from true, and the moderate consumption of high-quality, complex carbohydrates is quite beneficial for your overall health. Potatoes, pasta, rice and cereals should be part of your balanced diet. The key is to hone in on complex carbs, preferably ones that are rich in fiber. Whole grains are excellent because they leave you feeling fuller for longer. Just remember to watch your portion sizes and you’ll fare just fine.

Another Important Piece Of Advice: Don’t skip breakfast, either. It can prevent you from overeating by keeping your blood sugar levels stable and reducing both the frequency and severity of unhealthy cravings. Breakfast can even help you lose weight by activating your metabolism and helping you burn excess fat. And if you don’t have the time to prep breakfast in the morning, do it the night before! [Swirled]
