So we all hear it, carbs are BAD! The next day they are good. Here is the simple answer. It's both! Wait...what? Yup both are true. However, to go into detail...there are good carbs and there are bad carbs. Good carbs are wholesome, nutritious, and haven't been stripped of their nutrients. Carbs are everywhere and they are our main energy source so you DO NEED carbs. To tell good from bad, we need to look at the types of carbs. Complex are good carbs, they are full of nutrition and digest more slowly which makes you feel fuller longer and prevents you from crashing or feeling empty. Simple carbs are quickly digested, leaving you hungry for more and walking back into the kitchen for seconds (extra calories). So don't think that you are stuck on a diet where you cannot enjoy carbs, you need them...just need the right ones.
