Don’t be a potato - get in your carbs!
Aim to include complex carbs with your meals for lasting energy! Complex carbs are starches, including wholegrains, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and corn, which are absorbed slowly by our bodies, meaning they don’t send our blood sugar levels sky rocketing through the roof!
These complex carbs are also high in fibre, which is great for digestive health and regulating glucose levels. Since these complex carbs are starchy and high-fibre, the glucose (natural sugars) they contain is released into the bloodstream slowly, keeping us fuller and more energised for a long time!
While diets like keto claim to use fat as energy for your body, face facts: your body’s preferred source of energy is carbs! Fats can’t be fully absorbed as energy, and protein is meant to be a building block - which can be compromised if it’s being used as energy!
So get shopping for ya carbs, pronto!
