ABOUT BAD CARBS

Not all carbs are created equal.

Foods with a high glycemic index (GI) can make your blood sugar levels spike, which can make your body store fat and encourage you to overeat.

Bad carbs have these characteristics:

  • White bread High GI rating, zero fibre, few nutrients

  • White bagel Same as white bread, plus an average bagel equals as many as four servings of bread

  • Potatoes High GI rating, lends itself to frying or loading with butter and other toppings

  • White cereals High GI rating, no fibre, often loaded with sugar

  • Soft drinks GI rating through the roof, calories galore, zero nutrients, don't fill you up

  • Ice cream High GI rating, loaded with fat and sugar

  • "Light" and "fat-free" foods High GI rating; manufacturers often fill these salad dressings, yogurts and other low-fat foods with sugar for taste

  • Instant white rice No fibre means a sky-high GI rating

  • Bananas and melons High GI rating because of their sugar content; eat in moderation as these tasty fruits are a good source of vitamins

The following cookbooks about Low-Carb, Good Carbs or Bad Carbs will be very useful in guiding you to identifying good and bad carbohydrate foods.
