Besides, everyone that has tried a low carb diet knows that it sucks because you never have enough energy to do anything.

Carbohydrates are equal to energy, but the right carbs are equal to the right energy so you can’t go ahead and start eating bagels, French fries and cupcakes your gonna feel very sluggish and tired. Those foods are not the kind of carbohydrates you should be eating to often because they have no nutritional value, but of course once in a while it’s fine to have them as a treat. The carbs that you should be eating are fruits, green leafs, potatoes and on some occasions white rice, but you must remember if you want to lose weight by eating carbs you should eat most of it before your last meal. Meaning that your last meal should only contain fats and proteins, if you do have any carbs in your last meal it can only be from green leafy vegetables. Lastly, one of the most important rules with anyone trying to lose weight is that they need to be in a caloric deficit or else no matter what you eat you will not lose weight.

  1. Excellent advice here. I’m a low carb eater, but I think it’s always important to realize that there are carbs that are good to eat and that can actually aid in weight loss. I definitely agree that the most important thing is a calorie deficit, but equally as important is where those calories come from. Thanks for the great article.

  2. Good advice and informative article. I think I need to change my dinner menu by having more fats, proteins and leafy vegetables. Can you give me any examples of fats which is suitable to take for dinner in order to lose weight?
    Cheers!

  3. Seeing as how I only eat about half the items on this list I should really get on this! I noticed a lot of these foods have high fiber – Is that what constitutes a ‘good carb’?
