Happy Fit Friday!
A great fitness tip for those trying to lose weight and for an overall well-balanced diet is to eat your carbs 1-2 hours after your workout. When we say carbs we mean your pastas, breads, cereals, rice and occasional baked goods. Eating these types of carbs only after your workout will ensure that your body uses them to restore energy burned during your workout and not as fat on your body.
Your should also be only eating slow digesting and low glycemic carbs such as whole grain pasta and bread. That means no bleached or processed grains. Check your cereals also to make sure that the sugar content is low. Eating carbs high in sugar spikes insulin levels and causes the crash like effect shorty after consumption.
Other carbs that come from beans, fruit and vegetables can be eaten freely throughout the day and not just after your workout.
