Don’t Carbs Out Of The Diet
The war against carbs has never been more serious. In times of worrying numbers of obesity and great focus on beauty and appearance it is not surprising that many people set on extreme diets and the first thing they is to cut all kinds of food that contain carbohydrates. Is this such a good idea, though? Some recent studies and clinical research shows that the answer is NO. Carbs play an important role regulating our metabolism and they influence to a great extent the production of “happy” hormones in the brain and thus, can affect the mood of a person.
It is essential for people to understand that carbs are not only pizza, pasta and chocolate but a whole range of products that includes fruits, vegetables , whole bread and nuts. Many of these products deliver more important substances to the body than just “making you fat” so cutting them out of the menu will mean that you cut out also many vital vitamins, proteins, fibers and other basic “ingredients” for a well-functioning body. An extreme diet will not only be counter-productive and will make you more irritable and prone to stress, but can also be dangerous simply health-wise. Young women and nursing mothers, elderly people and people with chronic diseases need to be specially careful when making sure they don’t restrict themselves too much on these important substances.
Being able to make the difference between good and bad carbs is not like understanding coat hooks wall mounted or the stock market. It is an easy life choice that can focus on fresh fruits and vegetables rather than on manufactured sweets, chololate, ice-cream, white bread, french fries etc. Treat your body well and your mood will also be stable as carbs regulate the hormone balance in the body and can help you beat depression and low moods.
