Do I need to cut out carbs?

Everyone keeps telling me to cut out carbs.,but don't you need some carbs in your diet to be healthy? How much do you really need?
Submitted by tammylorenz

Yes, you do need carbohydrates in your diet. Carbs afterall, are the only food that supply Vit C and fiber. How much you need depends on your activity level. Most sedentary to moderately active people can be fine getting their carbohydrates from eating 9-11 servings of fruits/vegetables per day with selected whole grains.

Ketogenic diets are highly successful and the body learns to use fat as fuel. We don't need carbs for energy. One can have plenty of energy on a fat and protein diet, become lean and healthy. Low fat diets were the worst idea ever. They have increased the incidents of obesity and diabetes.

Personally I think the amount of carbs can vary from person to person. However I have found that if I eat more than 45 grams of carbs per day I will not lose weight. And if they are high sugar type carbs such as fruit, chocolate, sweet desserts, potatoes,carrots, I will not lose eating those types at all. If I eat beyond 60 carbs a day I will put on a pound per day. I have found the best solution is to eat lots of leafy greens and green vegetables. Those give high nutrition and cut sugar cravin

The brain and nervous system only get fuel from glycogen. Glycogen comes from carbohydrates. If you are on a workout routine, muscle recovery requires glycogen as well! Fat cannot be turned into glycogen, but protein can. That means that protein will be stripped from the muscle and used for energy if you donít provide it through carbohydrates. Yes, your boby will actually break down its own muscle tissue! Never cut carbs out completely, and be very carful scaling them back. The average person needs 50-60% from there daily calories, which on a 1500cal diet comes out to 187.5-225g a day.

carbs and proteins Together are vital to sustaining your blood sugar throughout the day. Aim for whole grains and fruits/veggies to get your carbs for the day.
