Let’s talk about carbs
There is a wde perception that carbs are the enemy when it come to weight loss peopletend to cut out carbs from their diet to achieve weight loss and follow low carb diet.
Let me start by dismissing this notion.. carbs are not the Enemy. Of course you should reduce processed and sugary carbohydrates from the diet, for weigh loss and to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The healthier sources of carbs such as wholegrains, fruit, vegetables and pulses are an important integral part of a healthy, balanced diet and ones that will help with weight loss.
Another important point to make is that Carbohydrates are the body’s main source of energy: They fuel the brain, kidneys, heart muscles, and central nervous system.
