CARBS - So what is the skinny on carbs?
Carbs are a big word for 2018! But not all carbs are equal and YES they do add to your belly size if over consumed. Fruits though are a much better option than processed foods. (50gram target) So think about this;
- Refined carbs found in processed pasta and breads do add to belly size.
- Carbs from fruit - not all fruits are equal so look at this (based on 100g, 1 cup or 1 med/large item) - choose wisely
