We all know that everyone is blaming carbs for weight gain these days.
It used to be fat and I am sure it will be protein in the future.
Everything works in cycles.
However, instead of blaming and demonising a food group, why not do what we have always been told to do by experts - eat the healthiest versions of these foods.
We know that eating refined carbs in excess amounts will make us gain weight.
We know that eating processed foods full of fats and sugars will make us gain weight.
We know that eating salt laden processed meats can lead to health issues.
So instead of singling out the food group, just eat the healthiest versions.
Eat the fruits, veg and unprocessed grains.
Eat the lean meats and go organic if you can afford it or you prefer it but it is not essential.
Eat the healthy fats from nuts, seeds, avocados and seeds etc.
It is not rocket science yet we continue to make it so.
I try to coach all my clients to include each food group on their meal plates, even if they eat out.
This teaches them to learn to make choices for themselves and eat a well balanced diet without freaking out if something is good or bad.
Why stress - life is too short to get caught up in endless food battles when the simple answers are right in front of our eyes.
