To lose weight effectively, avoid eating carbohydrates

Carbohydrates have always been associated with weight gain or prevention of weight loss! This is completely untrue! Carbohydrates are an essential part of each diet! In fact it’s recommended that 50-55% of the total calories consumed each day should come from carbohydrates. Carbohydrate sources such as pasta, bread, rice and potatoes provide you with energy for your daily activities. Without enough carbohydrates, your blood sugar goes down and you may start feeling tired and dizzy and having headaches. On the other hand, if you eat more than your body needs, the excess calories will be stored and you’ll gain weight. So moderation is key.

Note that carbohydrates are not created equal and it’s the type of carbohydrates which makes a difference in your weight loss diet and your overall health. Choosing whole grains such as whole-wheat bread, burghul, brown pasta and brown rice, is recommended most of the time, because they are rich in fiber which helps you feel fuller for longer, and they are more nutritious than their white counterparts as they are a good source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
