Read Transcript

Should you avoid carbohydrates when you're trying to lose weight? No, we love carbohydrates, we love wholly pasta and whole grain bread and kinwa and bagels, who doesn't love all of that stuff? And they're good for you when they are the whole grains. Now, remember carbohydrates are not just starches like potatoes and bread they're also fruits and vegetables and beans.

These foods are all so good for you, high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants. You have to have these in your diet to be healthy and they are also great components of a weight lose program, so don't completely eliminate your starchy cabs. Have some, enjoy the whole grain ones just don't go overboard.

So for example, instead of having a huge plate of pasta with sauce, have maybe a cup of pasta and load it up with vegetables and that will fill it out, it will fill you up and you'll still get that healthy curb fix that you want.
