Healthy Living: Carbohydrates Explained


HEALTHY LIVING IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY PHD WEIGHT
LOSS. PERFORMANCE, HEALTH, DIET. FEATURING DR. ASHLEY LUCAS. WE KNOW THAT CARBOHYDRATES PROVIDE US WITH
EASY ENERGY, BUT THEY ALSO BLUNT OUR ABILITY TO BURN FAT.WHILE ADDING EVEN MORE FAT TO
OUR BODIES. BUT WHAT EXACTLY ARE CARBOHYDRATES? CARBS INCLUDE SUGARS AND STARCHES AND ARE
FOUND IN FRUITS, VEGGIES, DAIRY PRODUCTS, SWEETS, PROCESSED FOODS, AND GRAINS. DIFFERENT TYPES OF CARBOHYDRATES AFFECT US
DIFFERENTLY. FAST ACTING CARBS ARE FOUND IN FOODS COMPOSED
OF SUGAR AND STARCH AND LITTLE FIBER. YOU FIND THEM FRUIT, HONEY, .REFINED AND UNREFINED
GRAINS, TOMATOES, STARCHY VEGETABLES LIKE WHITE POTATOES, SWEET POTATOES, .WINTER SQUASH,
PEAS, AND OF COURSE, SUGAR-SWEETENED BEVERAGES. THEY BREAK DOWN RAPIDLY INTO GLUCOSE AND ENTER
THE BLOODSTREAM QUICKLY. THAT RUSH OFTEN CAUSES BLOOD GLUCOSE TO SPIKE
AND RESULTS IN LARGE SWINGS IN HIGHS, AND REBOUNDING LOWS, A METABOLIC YO-YO THAT SHOULD
BE AVOIDED IN A SUCCESSFUL WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM. SLOW-ACTING CARBOHYDRATES CONTAIN LESS SUGAR
AND MORE FIBER THAT SLOWS BOTH DIGESTION AND THE SUBSEQUENT RELEASE OF GLUCOSE INTO THE
BLOODSTREAM. SLOW-ACTING CARBOHYDRATES MAY BE FOUND IN
BROCCOLI, CAULIFLOWER, ASPARAGUS, AND GREEN LEAF VEGGIES LIKE SPINACH, ARUGULA, AND KALE. IF YOU WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT, LET GO OF FOODS
MADE WITH GRAINS, INCLUDING BREAD, PASTA, RICE, AND CEREAL. ALSO AVOID WHITE AND PROCESSED FOODS BECAUSE
THEY’RE LOADED WITH SUGAR. EVEN AFTER YOU’VE MET YOUR WEIGHT-LOSS GOALS,
AVOID FAST-ACTING CARBS AND SAVE THEM FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS, JUST AS YOU WOULD A BIG
DESSERT. HEALTHY LIVING HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO YOU BY
