35. Are all carbs bad? Definitely not — eat up!
Carbohydrates are given a bad rap when it is unnecessary. In fact, they can be part of any diet, whether it is a low carb or a high carb diet. Carbs were first given a bad reputation when the Aitkin’s diet became popular, limiting carbohydrate intake. Recently, the ketogenic diet is also a very low carb diet, often taking the stance that carbs are bad. Just because you are eating fewer carbs does not mean that they are necessarily bad for you. Many people lower their carbohydrate intake to lose weight, and it is often very effective but can be harmful to some.
If you’re not looking to follow any diet plan and deal with certain restrictions, it can be better for some people to think of eating whole foods. Carbohydrates are found in many different fruits and vegetables. If you just try to eat a balanced diet full of good proteins, healthy fats, vegetables, and whole grains, you should get the benefits of eating this way. Carbohydrates are a part of any healthy diet, no matter if it’s a small portion or a significant one. You can’t cut them out completely, so it’s best just to find the best ways to eat them.
