This has led to many fad diets where people attempt to eliminate carbs from their meals for fast results.
However, carbs are your body’s primary fuel source and contribute to fat metabolism. That’s why avoiding carbs does not necessarily help your waistline, especially if you’re replacing them with foods that contain the same or higher amount of calories.
According to a study published in the journal Nutrients, overweight individuals who went on a high-carb diet for 16 weeks managed to reduce overall body weight and fat.
So it’s time to stop being anti-carbs and focus on choosing the right ones that are healthy and can even help in your weight loss efforts.
