Weight-Loss Carbs

Written by Denise Austin

Who hasn't been tempted by no-carb diets? They seem to work, and they yield results quickly. But what about those of us who can't part with fresh-baked bread or steaming rice? I don't know about you, but I'm not willing to give up all that good, nutritious food that quickly! Plus, breads and cereals can add important fiber to your diet and give you energy to keep going! We all need those benefits! I've learned that you can eat carbs and still lose weight. You just need to make good choices and watch your portion sizes. Here are some seriously healthy carbs for you to experiment with:

  • Whole-grain bread
  • Whole-grain or legume-based pasta
  • Whole-grain cereal
  • Barley
  • Quinoa
  • Brown and wild rice
  • Oatmeal
  • Popcorn
  • Sprouted grains
