Remember that time you decided not to ever eat carbs, sugar, pizza, anything carb related to food and weight gain again and you did it with success and ease??
Of course you don’t!
That’s because it’s pretty much the same as abiding by “don’t think about a pink elephant!”
You see, when you deem a particular food or category of food “off limits,” it’s pretty much all you are going to think about and crave. And perhaps willpower will keep you strong, but eventually you’ll go off the rails and end up overdoing it.
Instead, let’s understand 2 things: 1. Why it’s actually ok for you to have carbs and 2. How to create some easy rules around consuming them.
We’ve talked before about how there are two types of carbs – both fibrous (vegetables and fruits) and starchy (breads, grains, sugars, etc). You know that fibrous carbs are essential, but I’m here to tell you that starchy carbs are also ok, and here’s why…
Starchy carbs have several benefits, including the fact that they help you put on muscle. Starchy carbs affect your insulin, and insulin is a powerful anabolic hormone that supports muscle gain. They’re also great for post-workout recovery and a feeling of satiety in general.
Now, for a few rules. If you want to ENJOY starchy carbs – both in taste and benefits WHILE losing fat – here are a few things to consider.
