Carbohydrate Addicts Diet - Do They Exist?

101 44
Do you like carbs?  Are you addicted to carbs?  Is there such a thing as a carbohydrate addicts diet?  Not really, but if you are a starch lover who is put out with all the talk about high-protein diets, here is some advice you can use.

First, you need to understand that there are good carbs and bad ones, too.  Bad carbs metabolize quickly to sugars in your body and cause your blood sugar to rise, your sugar hormones to respond in an un-natural way, causing you to slowly gain weight.

So what to do with the carbohydrate addicts?  Diets that are high in leafy green vegetables, unbleached flour in your breads, and beans - all are great choices.  Stay away from foods that have bleached wheat flour and high fructose corn syrup (you'll be shocked with how many foods have both).

A carbohydrate addicts diet can have a nice variety of carbs, if you stick with what we call low-glycemic foods mentioned above.  Low glycemic means that the carbs don't go to sugar so fast in your body. Mix these with protein, some fats like nuts and lower-sugar fruits and you'll have a diet you can live with.
