There Are Ways to Make Those Carbohydrates You Eat Better for You


Carbohydrates always get a bad rap for making us gain weight, but according to Sergio Cortes our bodies do need some of them to function normally and be healthy. Ideally, we should exercise regularly to burn off excess carbs, but there are also things we can do when eating carbs to reduce any negative effects from them such as the spike in blood sugar they are known to cause. Eating more whole grains is the most frequently recommended way to get our carbohydrates in a healthier manner. When eating whole wheat bread or brown rice instead of the white varieties of these two staples, the body takes more time to break them down, which is good news for our waistlines.

As pointed out in a recent article in Livestrong.com, there are also things we can do in terms of how we prepare and eat our carbs that can help to reduce any negative effect from them. For instance, cooking rice in coconut oil and then letting it cool can reduce the calories from it by half. Another tip is to eat bananas slightly unripe as they take longer for the body to break down. Leftover and reheated pasta has also been found to have a smaller effect on increasing blood sugar as compared to when it is freshly prepared. A few tips like these, with more in the aforementioned article, can make a major change in how carbs impact our bodies while helping us stay healthier and stave off dreaded weight gain.
