June 08, 2014 1 min read

Carbs are an important part of your diet, as they give you the energy you need to do your workout. However, not all carbs are created equal, and your goal should be to eat mostly complex carbs--rich in fiber as well as carbohydrates. Here is a list of some of the best carbs to eat for weight loss:
  1. Oats are high in soluble AND insoluble fiber, plus they take longer to digest

  2. Beans are heart-smart protein that are also very high-fiber

  1. Bulgur or cracked wheat is loaded with filling, slow-burning fiber

  2. Vegetables are carb-heavy, but the high fiber content makes them IDEAL for weight loss

  2. Wheat berries speed up metabolism and pack a vitamin/mineral punch
