More recent trends in weight loss strategies call for the elimination or drastic reduction of carbohydrates from our diet to promote weight loss.  The question is however, “Can we really do without Carbs completely?”

The answer to this question is quite simple, “No.”  Carbohydrates (aka “Carbs”) are sugars—a basic nutrient building block found naturally in potatoes, rice, pasta, fruits, vegetables and bread. Our bodies were created to function optimally with the consumption of “Carbs” (sugars) in their unrefined or natural forms. In fact, the best and preferred energy source for normal function of your brain is sugar-- however, we just need to consume Carbs in moderation and again—in their natural or unrefined forms. 

Here are some basic tips to consider: 1) Beware of sodas and other sweetened drinks. This includes alcoholic beverages as well. 2) Read labels and run away from High Fructose Corn Syrup. This is a concentrated form of sugar.   3) Beware of comfort foods and emotional eating, typically of sweet or fatty things. 4) Being tired all the time drives our bodies to crave sugar, so aim to get more sleep. 5) Eat unrefined Carbs like whole grains, sweet potato, brown rice, brown pasta, fiber-rich fruits and veggies—but in smaller amounts and less often. 6) Reduce eating late meals and snack late at night. Doing so, blood sugars and insulin levels a chance to drop.  Follow these six tips and watch your weight and blood sugars (Diabetes) improve over time.

If you have any questions about diet or would like assistance with weight loss, please call your Activate Health & Wellness Center at (248) 267-4477. In addition to this, we would be happy to see you for your annual Comprehensive Wellness Physical and remember, sports physicals for children are free.
