Here are a few reasons for cutting more carbs from your diet.
- Can help reduce your risk of heart disease
The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found that limiting refined carbohydrates, like rice, pasta, and bread, can help heart health if you support your diet with healthy proteins and fats.
- Can help you maintain a healthy weight that’s right for you
Tired of counting every single calorie? Try cutting more carbs instead. Nutrition expert David Ludwig co-authored a study that reviewed 200 patients. They found that those who cut carbs and “replaced them with fat increased their metabolism and were able to burn more calories daily when compared with people who ate a high-carb, low-fat diet.”
- Low carb diets are shown to lower the risk of cancers
The MD Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas suggests limiting refined grain products, foods like white bread, and choosing healthier carbs from vegetables, nuts, fruits, and whole grains.
- Reduce your risk of diabetes
When you eat carbohydrates, your body breaks them down into glucose. Managing the number of carbs and what carbs you intake is crucial for those with or at risk for diabetes. The American Diabetes Association recommends cutting down on refined carbs like soda, white rice, and white bread.
