House of Carbs

It is well known that Carbohydrates are one of three macronutrients and a necessary part of our diet. Our body requires Carbs along with Proteins and Fats; neglect any of these, and your performance suffers. However, not all carbs are created equal. There are healthy carbs like fruits, vegetables, dairy and whole grains. On the other hand, avoid unhealthy carbs like pasta, packaged snack foods, and baked good because they are high on the glycemic index and spike your blood sugar. I recommend staying away from carbs that have an inflammatory response. These include sugar drinks, junk food, and other highly processed foods. Sugar, in particular, causes a massive inflammatory reaction that kicks your pancreas into overdrive to secrete enough insulin to break it down. After a while, the chronic consumption of sugar starts to take its toll, and this is usually how type II diabetes starts. In short, stick to the carbs that are on the low end of the glycemic index to avoid the spike in blood sugar and subsequent slump in energy; These include things like apples, brown rice, Ezekiel bread, berries and almost all vegetables.

Remember it’s OK to have carbohydrates in moderation. If you are a vegetarian or vegan, don’t feel compelled to eat a large number of carbs. There are plenty of ways to get a high amount of protein in your diet without wasting most of your macros on carbs. For Example, Hurry the food up has a fantastic recipe for Egg Quiches in bell pepper cups and other high protein low-carb meals.
