What carbs are good and what carbs are bad?
Carbohydrates are one of the best sources of fuel for your body. The trick is getting the right carbs, as well as having the proper portion for your fitness goals. The average diet should consist of about 40% carbs, and would be adjusted based on the goal of gaining weight or losing weight.
Well fruits, vegetables, and whole grains should be your main sources of healthy carbs. Try to stay away from high starch foods such as white bread and white rice.
I would never recommend cutting carbs completely out of your diet. I find carbs will actually help burn fat by properly keeping you fueled.
I myself eat about 65% carbs! You just have to find the right balance for you.
