Carbohydrates are evil. WRONG!

🍌CARBS ARE EVIL… Not quite.
Honestly, I am pretty tired of food groups being demonized, allot of my patients say they are cutting carbs, or keto or or or to lose weight? No fruits or vegetables because they too high carb?
⁉️WHAT? WHY? – it blows my mind.
You cannot cut an entire food group and expect to not suffer the consequences of that.
Part of the reason why carbohydrates have been scrutinized is that in excess, they can be converted into fat and cause blood sugar issues, particularly when the metabolic rate is low. This usually happens when the body struggles to utilize carbohydrates for fuel.
This means that it is not necessarily the carbs themselves that cause weight gain and blood sugar issues, but rather the state of the body. Working on improving the health on the inside, including our ability to use carbs for fuel is key.
Without this basic bit of information, it can often to lead people to chase weight loss and blood sugar goals that aren’t supportive to their long-term health.
Always think sustainable, long term and consistency.
✖️Not eating carbs will NOT equal weightloss. ✖️Not eating carbs will NOT equal health
Weight loss happens if your body is *responsive* and you are in a *calorie deficit*

✔️Eating carbs CAN be part of a healthy balanced diet
✔️A healthy responsive body will thrive with carbs IN the diet.
