Complex Carbohydrates

complex carbs

Hey everyone,

One key way of changing your body shape is to befriend complex carbs! I suggest avoiding all Simple carbs (those made of glucose). Simple carbs include table sugar and milk. Although fruits are rich in nutrients, be aware of them as they are packed with simple sugars.

Complex carbs are made of longer chains of sugars and therefore take the body longer to metabolise, and make you feel fuller for longer. These include whole grains, beans and nuts.

Other tasty complex carbs to add to your plate include sweet potatoes, veges, oats, quinoa.

Simple ways to incorporate complex carbs into your diet is to substitute brown rice for white and whole grain brown pasta for white pasta. I would encourage changing to nut based milks such as coconut or almond milk! They are much lower in calories contain less sugar per ml.

I love to bake, but unfortunately white flour is too refined to show any body changing results, so I recommend using oats or oat flour. I use these when baking protein treats! (Recipes to follow)
