I got a question from a client who wants to lose weight. The question was should I stop eating carbohydrates if I want to lose excess body fat?
My answer is no. You don't have to stop eating carbohydrate in order to lose weight. If you want to lose weight and maintain your ideal body weight for the rest of your life you have to incorporate all the macro nutrients in your eating plan. Macro nutrients are carbohydrates, protein and heathy fats.
The reason why we need carbohydrates in our eating plan is because carbohydrates provides our body with energy.
So if you want to live a healthy active lifestyle you should be eating healthy carbohydrates to fuel your body so that you always have energy and feel great all the time.
