Let’s put it this way, if you want to eliminate white flour carbohydrates from your diet for the rest of your life, that would terrific. But deliberately eating no carbs is anything but good. As you know, diets don’t work for the long run because deprivation is not a lifestyle choice and either is going carb-free.
Did you know that the weight lost from eliminating carbs from your diet is only water? With that being said, there is only so much water weight loss that you can achieve. Real weight loss is through the reduction of fat, notice I said reduction, not elimination. A balanced diet that includes complex carbohydrates is essential to your health; enabling you to take advantage of all the vitamins and minerals they have to offer.
So what carbohydrates should you be eating? Some of my favorites are brown rice, quinoa, Fiber One Cereal and whole grain bread. Here’s 3 reasons why you should be eating all of these:
- Weight loss actually happens when you eat whole grains. How? Because they fill you up and keep hunger at bay; which enables you to take in less calories each day. Learn more about this from Extreme Weight Loss coach Chris Powell here.
- PMS knocks on your door every month and there’s not much that we can do about it. But is there? Did you know that whole grain carbs are high in B vitamins; which studies have shown reduce the symptoms of PMS?
- Overall improved health is associated with eating whole grains. From reducing the risk of a stroke, heart disease, cancers, type 2 diabetes and while also boosting your immune system, keeping you protected from illnesses.
