GOOD Carbs BAD Carbs

Ok, let’s see what’s the difference between a good carb and a bad carb, also where can we get them.

*Good carbs/healthy carbs/complex carbs– They come in three different names, but they all mean one thing. It means that their chemical structure and fibers require our bodies to work harder to digest, and energy is released over a longer time. We are dealing here with a carbohydrate that is rich in fiber, digest slowly, and make you feel full longer because is keeping blood sugar and insulin levels stable. These complex carbs are found in their “natural” state, like cereals and whole-grain breads.

Examples of good carbs: Bran Cereals, Fresh Fruits, Whole Grain Breads and Green Vegetables

*Bad carbs/unhealthy carbs/simple carbs– Remember I said above that good carbs are digested slowly, well, simple carbs get digested much much quicker. In other words, they are smaller molecules of sugar which Is stored as glycogen in our cells. If you don’t use that stored energy fast, it will be immediately converted to fat. Bad carbs are foods that have been stripped out of all fibers and good nutrients.

Examples of bad carbs: Refined Breads, Sugared Cereals, Candy & Desserts, Sodas and Sugary Drinks.

Eating more whole grains, tips:

*Try to avoid refined carbs, for example foods like pastas, breads and cereals that are not whole grain.

*Before buying something check the labels, in U.S. you have Whole Grain Stamps that distinguish between 100% whole grain and partial whole grain.

*For a healthy diet, try to include a variety of whole grains like brown rice, barely, whole meat, millet and quinoa.

*You can also mix grains. Maybe at first whole wheat pasta and brown rice doesn’t float your boat, but you can mix what you normally eat with whole grains. Over time you can increase little by little the whole grain.
