‘Are Carbohydrates a Friend or Foe when it comes to Weight Loss’ with Fiona Tuck
Carbohydrates can help prevent weight gain—and even promote weight loss.
Yes you heard it, carbs (the right kind) can help us to lose weight. Researchers at Brigham Young University in Utah followed the eating habits of middle-aged women for nearly two years and found that those who increased their fibre intake lost weight. Women who decreased the fibre in their diets gained. Many carbohydrates contain dietary fibre, which is actually an indigestible complex carbohydrate.
Swapping refined grains for whole grains may help reduce total body fat and belly fat, according to research in the Journal of Nutrition. In the study, adults who ate about 3 servings of whole grains a day had about 2.4 percent less body fat and 3.6 percent less abdominal fat than those who ate less than a quarter of a serving.
