Carbs aren’t quite the evil things you’ve been told they are. In fact, your body needs a certain amount of carbs just to function. The trick is choosing the good over the bad. All that being said, limiting your carbs is a good way to lose some excess weight as long as you balance your intake for good health so that you get what you need without going overboard and hindering your weight loss goals. Here’s how to limit how many carbs you get.
Bread is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to unhealthy carbs. You want to eat 100% whole grains and stay away from the refined ones. Of course, slashing your intake in half can certainly help you lose some weight. Eat your sandwich open-faced by piling all of the toppings on one slice of bread and skipping the other slice of bread. You won’t miss it. I promise!
