Carbs are [NOT] the Enemy!

Updated: Sep 11, 2023

If you relate to the notion that carbs are your enemy, it may help to take notice where you're getting your carbs from. Carbohydrates are truly vital to your survival, providing your body and brain with fuel. Contrary to popular belief, they're not actually an enemy!

Vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk/milk products, nuts and seeds all naturally contain carbs. And they all have the capacity to be really excellent choices!

All, except milk and milk products, contain fiber, a highly critical undigestible carb that supports a healthy gut and reduces the risk of colon cancer - the third most common cancer diagnosed in adults in the U.S.

Fiber also assists with appetite control, supports regular blood sugars, and healthy blood lipids.

Yogurt and kefir are also great choices for carbohydrates as these cultured and fermented products contain probiotics - bacteria that work symbiotically with fiber in support of your gut's health!

Carbs the enemy? Not any longer! As you include more of the aforementioned foods into your diet every single day, you'll find you feel more satisfied with your meals and snacks, and over time, your body will naturally reach balance.
