CONFUSED ABOUT CARBS?

Majority of homes are scattered with chips, cookies, and other sweets. If you’re reading this because you’re a person or family working towards a healthier LIFESTYLE, you have to get rid of these items first. Your mind and flesh are too weak for avoidance. In doing so, you’re forced to make smarter choices. Thereby, leaving your one cheat day as a means to satisfy your crave.

Speaking from experience:

Once I created my “smart kitchen“, no sweets allowed, that’s when my efforts showed results, a 50 lbs. WEIGHT LOSS.

The Problem

As I merrily walk around the organic and natural section, while grocery shopping, I ventured down one aisle too many.

Just a mere feet, stacked up so neatly, were the cookies, crackers, and bread. Plus, a few aisles away shelved the pastas and cereals. Mostly, if not all, overloaded with refined flour. Many carbs in the supermarkets today do more harm than good.  And that’s one of the biggest reason just about EVERY country’s obesity rate is on the rise.

The Answer

Aren’t I suppose to have some carbs in my diet?”

Yes, you definitely need carbs in your daily life. In fact, carbs are used by your body to produce blood sugar, which your body uses for energy and proper brain function.

Eliminating outright or eating low carbs is outrageous. This will only result in you lacking energy, mental clarity, and focus.

Now What

A great carb source with tons of fiber, vitamins, minerals, AND calorie friendly are fruits (primarily antioxidant packed berries) and green leafy vegetables.

Important Note:

Carbs are SUCH an important part of this entire weight loss process.

Notice earlier I made no specific distinction between carbs like breads and pastas. This wasn’t a mistake because there are acclaimed “healthy foods”, which contribute to NOT losing fat.

Items like:

• Whole wheat bread
• Whole grain pasta
• so called “healthy cereals”
• Whole grain crackers

Unfortunately, these particular items labeled “healthy” when they hit your system turn into sugars and either add to weight gain or impede weight loss.

Likewise, nutrtion experts say, it is impossible to lose fat without eating fat.

Fats needed to lose Fat:

• Real butter
• Whole eggs
• Coconut oil
• Avocados
• Raw nuts

I can promise you one thing: If you pick the “right carbs”, you’ll start to see the weight drop off a lot faster than ANYTHING else you do!

  1. Thanks for all the good info. I’m gong to put it to work in my own diet, I mean lifestyle!

    • Hey,

      Glad the info came across well with you. Just a bit of background on myself, I played professional football for 9 years and was forced to maintain a certain weight. After retiring, it was difficult to shed it off at first, that’s unitl I took a closer look at what was leaving my plate in to my stomach.

      You’ll do excellent.

      Was 295 now 249!!!!
