❤️Carbs make me happy thanks @fit_pham for this👱🏻♀️"Carbfusion " is real so hope this helps. Remember I'm queen promoter of the 80/20 diet ratio ( 80%wholefood 20% party food) not heavy restrictions.
@fit_pham said the following wise words
🔸️#KNOWYOURFOOD: LET'S TALK ABOUT CARBS.🔸️ First thing first: CARBS are an essential macronutrient. Incorporating a healthy amount into your diet is NECESSARY. Do NOT avoid carb like the plague. ❌For real, eating carbs does not = gaining fat.❌ .
✔Second: There's lots of different kinds of carbs. Generally speaking, there's about 2 different kinds of carbs, Simple vs Complex. But that being said, not all simple carbs are equal, and not all complex carbs are equal.
✔Third: Let's break down SIMPLE carbs. The simplest form of carbohydrate is glucose. Simple sugars that are found in foods include sucrose (table sugar), fructose (found in fruit), and lactose (found in milk). Not all simple carbs are bad. Natural simple carbs in fruit and dairy are perfectly healthy! If you're going simple, try to stick to whole fruits (not fruit juices) and organic dairy instead of the table sugars and sweeteners. .
✔NEXT UP: Complex carbs. The first type is COMPLEX STARCHY CARBS, which what you typically think of: pasta, rice, bread, etc. Where these carbs start to go downhill is with REFINED complex starchy carbs, like white bread or regular pasta. Try to stick to UNREFINED complex starchy carbs (whole wheat pasta, oatmeal, whole grains, etc). The second type is COMPLEX FIBROUS CARBS, which are most vegetables. Fibrous carbs are rich sources of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and other nutrients and tend to be green vegetables. These are full of fiber, which is the indigestible portion of plant material (i.e. vegetables) .
👉I'm not saying you should never eat foods with simple refined sugars. That is NOT my kind of life. If you want to eat that damn ice cream or donut or slice of pie, DO IT. But if you're looking for ways to make slightly healthier choices, try subbing OUT the REFINED shit as much as possible with UNREFINED and WHOLE carbs. But again, #FINDYOURBALANCE and do your thang. 😍
