Slow Digesting Carbs

For today, one day, that’s all, try to only eat slow digesting carbs!

Slow-digesting carbs are mostly complex carbs found in foods with plenty of fiber and starch. Slow-digesting carbs also include simple carbs if they are eaten with their natural fiber or milk protein, such as fruits and dairy products. Fast-digesting carbs include refined grains and foods with plenty of sweeteners including sugar, honey and corn syrup.

My Favorite!

Here is a list of slow, also known as complex carbs:
  • Oats (ALL KINDS), oat bran, oat bran cereal (I.E. CHEERIOS)
  • Potatoes (ALL KINDS)
  • Rice (BROWN)
  • Pasta (WHOLE WHEAT)
  • Bread (ALL KINDS EXCEPT WHITE BREAD)
  • Beans (ALL KINDS)
  • Fruits and Vegetables

Here is a list of fast, also knon as simple carbs (stay away!):

  • Sugar (ALL KINDS)
  • Pineapple
  • Rice (WHITE)
  • Pasta (WHITE)
  • Bread ( WHITE BREAD)
  • Dried Fruits

My favorite thing to do is to wake up early and start the day off with a good sweat. There's nothing more exciting then trying and new workout. I love to create new workouts to help people get fit. View all posts by fitsgreaterthanskinny
