Making Good Carb Choices - Eat Your Veggies

Low carb diets have been around for a very long time. Some people have success with them, while others tend to cave in and go back to eating carbs. And there’s even some that this eating plan doesn’t work for at all.

However, when it comes to any diet, whether it’s a new fad diet or new diet trend, the best possible eating plan is a lifestyle eating plan.

Your diet should contain protein, carbohydrates and fats. One of the main key points is to figure out which combination your body works with the best.

The truth is, you can’t cut out either of those necessary components completely and expect to have good health. Proteins are the building blocks of muscle and bone.

Carbohydrates are your main energy source and fats help regulate and fuel a whole lot of things.

Carbohydrates are one area that people definitely need to control. Cutting out processed carbs will help you over the long haul. You’ll feel better and be in better control of your weight management.

Processed carbs consist of baked goods like cookies, cakes, donuts, etc. It can also be in fried snacks like potato chips and corn chips. Cutting these snacks from your diet will help greatly.

That doesn’t mean you have to cut carbs out completely. There are still many choices for you. They come from the garden and not from a processing plant.

Corn and potatoes are two natural carbs. You should limit your intake of these, especially if you have diabetes or are prone to diabetes from your family history.

These carbs digest fast and turn into sugar quickly, which can overload your system.

Beans, legumes, nuts and seeds also contain carbohydrates, but they are more along the lines of whole foods, which means they contain amounts of protein, carbs and fats.

You should not go on a binge with these items either, but the carbs in these foods digest slower and can help regulate your blood sugar levels better.

Fruits also contain carbs and natural sugar, but they are a better choice than processed foods. Any time you can eat whole foods, instead of foods that have gone through some kind of processing, you’re going to be better off.

Skip the pasta, breads and other junky foods and choose to eat as fresh from nature as you can. Your body will thank you.

You’ll feel better, start to gain your energy back and eventually the brain fog will clear.

Decide you’re going to eat the way nature intended and take charge of your health and eating habits. This should be a lifelong change and not some quick fix to lose weight.

We all know that fad diets only last so long and too many people return to their old eating habits.

By making permanent changes in your diet, you’ll not only lose weight, but be able to manage your weight for the rest of your life.

Make better choices and enjoy your veggies
