What to eat if you’re cutting carbs out of your life

Carbs mainly provide energy but if you consume it excessively it will turn into fat (so does other types of food). One of the ways to lose weight is to limit your carbs intake. But first, let’s brush up on our knowledge of crabs.

One thing you need to remember is that not all carbs are created equal. There are simple and complex carbs. Complex carbs are unprocessed and normally contain natural fibre. Example of complex carbs are bread, rice, pasta, starchy vegetables and legumes. Refined carbs, on the other hand, are processed, with its natural fibre stripped out of it. Cake, candy, and milk are examples of simple carbs.
