In this episode of The Ask Abbey Podcast, I'm giving you the 411 on all things carbs! Carbohydrates have started to get a bad reputation again in the past couple years with the takeover of Keto, high fat diets. I explain the many reasons we DO need carbohydrates in our diet, and why extremely low carb diets will not be your long term solution to weight loss and body recomposition. I talk through the importance of eating adequate amounts of carbs, how to calculate the amount of carbs you should eat in a day, the different types of carbs (sugars, starches, fiber, simple, complex), and healthy vs. unhealthy carbohydrate sources. If you're feeling confused on how much of your diet should come from carbs, which carbs you should minimize, and what kinds of carbs you should be eating, this episode is a must listen.
