SOT: HEIDI REICHENBERGER/AMERICAN DIETETIC ASSOC.

CUTTING OUT CARBS COMPLETELY OR ALMOST ELIMINATING THEM CAN POSE SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS. YOU'RE MISSING OUT ON VITAMINS THAT ARE IN CARBOHYDRATE RICH FOODS, YOU'RE MISSING OUT ON FIBER.
CARBS, BASICALLY THE SUGARS, STARCHES AND FIBER WE EAT...COME IN TWO GENERAL FORMS: COMPLEX AND SIMPLE.
COMPLEX CARBS ARE CONSIDERED THE GOOD ONES, BECAUSE THE BODY PROCESSES THEM MORE SLOWLY.
WHOLE GRAIN FOODS SUCH AS MULTIGRAIN BREADS, OATMEAL, BROWN RICE, VEGETABLES AS WELL AS BEANS AND LENTILS FALL INTO THE CATEGORY OF GOOD CARBS.


SOT: HEIDI REICHENBERGER

THE HEALTHY CARBS ARE GIVING YOU VITAMIN A, VITAMIN C, ANTIOXIDANTS
THE "SIMPLE" CARBS, THE ONES TO AVOID, TEND TO GIVE YOU A QUICK BURST OF ENERGY BUT THEN YOU CRASH QUICKLY, AND ARE HUNGRY AGAIN. SIMPLE CARBS CAN BE FOUND IN BAKED GOODS, SNACK BARS, SWEETENED CEREALS AND CANDIES.
SO NUTRITIONISTS WOULD RECOMMEND YOU CHOOSE YOUR CARBS WISELY. AND IF YOU'RE REACHING FOR THE BREAD OR DINING ON PASTA, CHOOSE THE WHOLE WHEAT VARIETIES INSTEAD.
BUT REMEMBER, THE AMERICAN DIETETIC ASSOCIATION CAUTIONS THAT A CALORIE IS A CALORIE...AND THAT TOO MUCH FAT, PROTEIN --OR-- CARBOHYDRATE IN YOUR DIET WILL CAUSE YOU TO GAIN WEIGHT.
