Good carbs and bad carbs

At Slender For Life™ Hypnosis for Weight Loss people frequently ask me about good carbs and bad carbs. I was pleased to find a post by Chuck Carroll, the Weight Loss Champion that tells what are good carbs and bad carbs.

People often tell me they avoid carbs and talk as if carbohydrates are the plague. Nothing could be further from the truth. Your body needs the whole grain carbohydrates that are filled with fiber. Your brain is fueled by carbs. And no, I’m not talking about cookies and potato chips.

With weight loss hypnosis you can easily have a large amount of no desire for the carbs that make you fat and sick and create healthy desires for the carbs that fuel your brain and make your body healthy, slender and strong.

Good carbs and bad carbs

Poor food choices can lead to increased body size, heavier weight and an expanding waist.

Good Carbs

Good carbohydrates are also known as complex carbohydrates. The body takes longer to digest them and their energy is released over an extended period of time.

Complex carbohydrates have numerous health benefits including high levels of fiber. Because the body digests fiber-rich foods more slowly you often feel full for extended periods of time. Thus, unnecessary snacking is often avoided and fewer calories are consumed.

Complex carbs also help boost metabolism.

In addition, foods with these good carbohydrates tend to be more nutrient-dense and score low on the glycemic index.

Examples of foods with good carbs include whole grain breads, bran cereals, green leafy vegetables and fresh fruit.

Bad Carbs

Bad carbohydrates are also known as simple carbohydrates. The body digests them rapidly and quickly stores them as fat.

Simple carbohydrates tend to be lower in fiber. They are also not as nutrient-dense as complex carbs. Essentially, bad carbs are empty calories that ultimately turn into belly fat.

In addition, consuming simple carbohydrates can cause blood glucose levels to spike. The body often feels tired and sluggish after eating them.

Bad carbs also tend to score higher on the glycemic index. The infographic shown below helps to explain what the glycemic index is.

Examples of foods with bad carbs include sugary treats like candy, dessert and soda. Many breakfast cereals and refined breads also contain high levels of simple carbohydrates.
