What Are The Good Carbs?
Good carbs are: Plant foods that give us fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals along with grams of carbohydrate, such as whole grains, beans, vegetables, and fruits.
Good carbs are high in fiber and good for you. Potatoes with the skins intact are a good source of nutrients and fiber. Potatoes are nutritious and not high in calories. Fresh fruits and berries usually have natural fruit sugars, but they also contain dietary fiber in their coverings and seeds, lots of vitamins and minerals have extra health benefits. Grains and cereals are high in starch, but whole grain products, you’ll get more nutrition and fiber than if you pick refined versions.
Always avoid carb-rich foods that are low in fiber. It’s usually heavily processed food like potato chips which are high in fat, starch and sodium. Sweets are another to avoid high in sugar, but not nutritious. Soft drinks get all their calories from sugar, but there’s nothing else of nutritional value. These types of high sugar, nutrition-poor foods are sometimes said to contain empty calories.

Go for foods that have high-fiber carbs that’s anything brown pasta, rice wholemeal bread, and whole-wheat. It contains more fibre than the white varieties. Fiber fills you up sooner and takes longer to digest so you don’t get hungry again so soon. Don’t add too much extra fat to them though.  Just remember as long as you prepare them with healthy cooking methods and watch your serving sizes It will help you lose the weight.
