Low carb diets with a lot of people have now become the best way to shift any unwanted fat. However, with so much conflicting and misleading information, it’s difficult for the average person to not only find out what works but also understand how to use it on a day to day diet to aid weight loss.
We have kept it simple with these 3 points to remember when looking at reducing your carbohydrate intake.
1 YOU CAN EAT CARBS AND LOSE WEIGHT, JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT AND THE RIGHT TYPE
Focus on eating carbs that are high in fibre such as vegetables, beans, fruits, and whole grains.
2 CONTROL THE AMOUNT YOU EAT ON DAYS YOU ARE EXERCISING AND NOT EXERCISING
For example, on days you don’t exercise reduce the carbs you eat and maybe vary the types.
3 ENJOY CARBS POST WORKOUT
Spiking insulin with carbs post workout can be beneficial to muscle recovery when consumed with protein. If you missed it earlier in the week check out the guest post from BSc Hons James Rutherford on insulin
So to conclude, focus on having a balance and look at timing you intake around your workouts.
