Are we Overeating Carbohydrates?
Today my body must know it’s a cardiovascular day because I’m really craving extra carbohydrates. Since it’s a cardio day I don’t feel guilty having a little extra since my body will use it as fuel and provide me with energy to workout.
So what am I having extra of? Good question. I’m having gluten free spiral pasta, sweet potato with the skin, no condiments on the sweet potato. I’m sure you love carbohydrates just like me. Although we think are are bad for us there not our body needs carbohydrates for energy. Carbs are great in moderation of course.
I eat with a purpose! There’s a reason why I eat what I eat. Eating healthy and making the right food choices is not impossible. You have to want to change and want to eat healthy, that’s the first step.
I tell my friends and clients to make a mental note how they feel after making unhealthy food choices or over eating on sedentary days.
On days I dabble in a little excess I make sure it’s a day I will be really active. For instance when heading to the mountain to snowboarding there are not many food choices, my usual at Chic-fill is a spicy chicken sandwich on a “wheat bun” with “extra lettuce and tomato” Im okay with eating this because I know I will burn it off that day snowboarding.
We all have to start somewhere. No matter what stage you are in to committing to live a healthy life style making good carb choices can be a small start to a healthy future of feeling better and having more energy.
Something as simple as choosing the right kind of carbohydrates in moderation can be a small yet drastic health change.
