Carbs: Truth

According to Reuter’s, a study shows that it isn’t carbs, but what kind of carbs you eat that matters.

“People who are overweight do not appear to eat more carbohydrates overall than people who weigh less, the researchers report in the American Journal of Epidemiology. However, they found that overweight people tend to eat more refined carbohydrates, such as white bread and pasta, which cause a rapid spike in blood sugar.”

…”In contrast, whole grains, fruits and vegetables have carbohydrates that don’t have such high glycemic index, Ma said.”
