Carbs are friend, not foe
If part of your New Year’s resolution involved cutting out carbohydrates, I hope you’ll reconsider.
Carbohydrates (we’ll call them carbs) have gotten a bad rap with the rise of popular diets like Atkins, Paleo and Keto—leaving people understandably confused about their place in a healthy lifestyle.
The biggest thing to remember is that carbs are a broad category of food with not all types being created equal. It’s the type, quality and quantity that ultimately affect one’s health.
