Are Carbs Good  or  Bad?

When it comes to managing weight in our 50’s and beyond, the carb dilemma is one of the most confusing and frustrating topics. 

We can tell you from YEARS of experience working with women and weight loss that over 90% of the time, there is no need to avoid carbohydrates and in fact, it can be detrimental to do so in the long run.

First and foremost,  carbs are  NOT  the enemy,  and here’s why:

• They contain powerful, anti-inflammatory plant chemicals such as antioxidants and polyphenols that help reduce our risk of cancer, heart disease, dementia, osteoporosis, and more.

• Carbs help provide satisfaction at meals by filling you up.

• Carbs are the only macronutrient that provides real, whole food sources of fiber.

One of the greatest benefits carbs offer is its fiber content.  One of its most important features is that it feeds our good bacteria. We have trillions of bacteria in our bodies that need to be nourished!
