Carbs for weight loss
Link: Carbs for weight loss
“Scientists and diet gurus are claiming that carbs can actually help you lose weight. The key, they say, is to focus on “resistant starch carbs” (RSCs) — which have tightly packed sugar molecules that aren’t as easily broken down by enzymes in your mouth and intestines. RSCs are found in foods including; sweet potatoes, whole grain pasta, beans, lentils, artichokes, and quinoa.
According to research by the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center for Human Nutrition, RSCs help people eat less, burn more calories, and feel more energized and less stressed. Even the World Health Organization (WHO) has given them a thumbs up.”
