Ordinary Vegan Podcast #28: A Guide To Good Carbohydrates & Bad Carbohydrates

Confused about carbohydrates? Well you are not alone and learning what good carbohydrates are is the key to a successful healthy diet.

To understand why carbs often get a bad rap, first, we need to be aware of the different types of carbohydrates.  

Why is this important?

Because carbohydrates are our body’s primary source of energy. If you eat healthy carbs, as part of a balanced diet that includes protein and fat, your body will function the way it should. 

If you consume unhealthy carbohydrates, you can develop serious health issues including diabetes, auto-immune disease, and obesity.

In today’s podcast, we break it down. Learn which foods are good carbohydrates and how they contribute to weight loss, normal blood sugar and energy.

We will also learn where all the bad carbohydrates are hidden and which foods to avoid.
