Carbohydrates 101 – A Simple Guide to Gorging on All The Rice & Pasta While Improving Your Health

“Oh! its the carbs! Just cut it out and you’ll lose weight”

“Diabetic? Stop having carbs. That’s the main culprit!”

“Don’t eat carbs at night!”

You have probably heard one or all of these. Low-carb diets are becoming popular and further pushing these myths.

Did you know?

Carbohydrates are your body’s preferred source of energy. They help fuel your brain, kidneys, heart muscles, and central nervous system. 🤯

The problem is not carbs, its the SOURCE of carbs.

If the main sources of carbs is your daily diet are from refined foods like: 

🍚 White Rice

🍚 Maida (including bread, pasta, biscuits, noodles)

🍚 Rava

🍚 Semiya

🍚 White Sugar

🍚 Jaggery

🍚 Honey

then, yes, you must work on reducing and replacing them with healthy unrefined high carb foods like:

🍠 Brown/Red/Black Rice

🍠 Unpolished Millets

🍠 Legumes

🍠 Whole Wheat

🍠 Starchy Vegetables

🍠 Whole Fruits

🍠 Dates and other dry fruits

The solution is not to cut out carbs or replace it with more fat or protein, but to replace refined sources of carbs with whole plant sources! 🌾

✅ These whole plant foods rich in carbs give your body the energy it requires to fuel your vital organs.

✅ They are also high fiber foods that ensure that you have steady blood sugar levels.

✅ They are packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that boost overall health.

Be Blessed!
