CARBS 101

There’s a lot of confusion surrounding the macronutrient carbohydrates (carbs). No matter what your nutrition strategy you follow, carbohydrates play a critical role in our health and weight loss goals. Each of these articles were put together to help dispel some of the common myths and give good recommendations on how to properly incorporate carbs into you diet. Since each article builds on the previous we recommend starting with the first article, although feel free to jump around if something catches your eye. We hope you find this information eye opening and enlightening."

No single nutrient causes more confusion than carbohydrates. Often you’ll hear partial truths about how carbs make you look, feel or affect your health. Statements like: “Carbs make you fat”… “carbs make you sluggish”… “carbs cause disease.”
Can you lose weight quickly with a low-carb or keto diet? Absolutely. There are some very scientifically sound reasons why low-carb diets work when done correctly.

There’s a common misconception with keto diets: that the majority of fat loss is due to the conversion of fatty acids (from fats) into ketones to fuel the body and brain.
Carbohydrates are one of Nature’s amazing gifts, created from the energy of the sun and the carbon dioxide in the air, providing us with not only a source of fuel for our bodies but also oxygen for us to breathe!
Fiber is easily one of the most misunderstood, overlooked, and underrated nutrients in our diets. Technically, it’s not considered a nutrient, since our bodies can’t directly break fiber down into energy. But don’t let that fool you.
