Here is a picture from one of our morning SuperFit workouts.  Good stuff.  These GB members are “staying on it dog’on it”!

Check out what one Nutrition “expert”, Joel Marion from BioTrust Nutrition, says are his 4 best Recommended Carbs to eat:

#4 – Berries & Cherries
Berries like blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and cherries (although not technically a berry) are some of the BEST carbs you can eat. They are high in fiber, packed with antioxidants, and score extremely low on the glycemic index, especially cherries which come with a GI of just 22.

#3 – Sprouted Grain Bread
Sprouted grain breads, like Ezekiel 4:9 bread (one of the most popular brands of sprouted grain bread) is a great way to include bread in your diet on occassion without all the issues associated with white breads and even 100% whole wheat breads.
Instead, Ezekiel bread is organic, sprouted, 100% whole grain flourless bread. A 2-slice serving even contains 8 grams of complete protein and 6 grams of fiber, so don’t give up the bread, just choose the right kind!

#2 – Quinoa
While brown rice is thought to be the healthy grain, there’s one even better, and that’s quinoa.
Quinoa is a gluten free grain that contains double the protein of brown rice along with greater fiber content and a lower glycemic load.
Not only that, but quinoa is the ONLY grain to contain complete protein and the full spectrum of amino acids.

#1 – Beans, Lentils, and other Legumes
Beans and Lentils, part of the “legume” family, just may be my #1 choice for a healthy carb. Packed with loads of fiber and protein, …. Because of their fiber & protein content, along with their versatility, I eat something from the legume family in at least one of my meals daily. I’d highly recommend you’d do the same!

That is a sampling of his article on these 4 carb foods.  For more info from him check out this link: NEVER eat this carb (literally, never)

Carbs are good, and they can be bad.  The goal is  not to eliminate carbs, especially since they are so many “carb” foods for us to eat that are delicious and very Nutritious.  The goal is to learn which ones, and in what “forms”, are the best ones, choose from those the ones we will actually eat, choose our portion sizes wisely, then go at it.  So in your New Year’s goals of EATING BETTER, dont just “cut out your carbs”, because that is not the answer.  Yes it can help short term, but for most it does not turn out good!
