Most people know there is such thing as good carbs and bad carbs, but not everyone understands WHY this is.

Granted, most people don’t care to know, but for those that do, I’ll explain.

Good Carbohydrates

Good carbs are low on the Glycemic Index (GI). You may have heard of this before, but what is it?

Basically, it’s just a scale that tells you how fast your body breaks down and absorbs whatever you ate.

Items that are low on the GI are food that breaks down very slowly in your body and usually keeps you feel full for longer. This is important because as long as you feel full, you’re much less likely to over-eat.

Another reason why low GI foods are good for weight loss is because they don’t spike your insulin as much as High GI foods.

When you consume and digest carbs, your body’s blood sugar rises when the nutrients are distributed into your bloodstream. Your body likes to maintain homeostasis (balance), so to combat this rise in blood sugar, your body releases the hormone insulin from your pancreas in order to bring your levels back to normal.

Having large and sporadic insulin spikes promotes fat storage. Therefore, it makes sense that foods that don’t spike your insulin so high will keep your blood sugar levels more stable and your body won’t be in fat storage mode that often.

Have you ever felt tired right after eating a big meal? That’s most likely because the big changes in your blood sugar can make you “crash” and feel extremely tired. Especially if the majority of the carbs you ate were of the high GI kind.

Bad Carbs

So you can probably guess by now that bad carbs are the exact opposite. These are the high glycemic foods. These types of food digest and get absorbed by your body much faster than low GI foods.

Since your body metabolizes it so fast, it causes bigger insulin spikes, which have the negative affects that I mentioned earlier.

These foods are often also not very nutritious. They have very little fiber and other vitamins. This is why it doesn’t keep you full for very long.

Examples of Good Carbs

  • Oatmeal
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Brown Rice
  • Anything made with “Whole Wheat Flour” (bread, pasta, etc)
  • Beans
  • Veggies and Fruit

Examples of Bad Carbs

  • Cake
  • Cookies
  • Candy
  • Pop
  • Any other forms of Sugar
  • Chips
  • Pizza
  • Nachos
  • Anything made with “Enriched Bleached Flour” (white bread, pasta, etc)
  • Ice Cream
  • You get the idea…

Stick with good carbs as much as you can! They will help you lose more weight and are MUCH more healthier for you.
