7 Healthy Carbohydrate Sources

We need carbohydrates to stay healthy and have enough energy throughout the day. Yes, you can gain fat by carbohydrates. But this is usually due to excessive intake or carbohydrates with a high glycemic index. Eating to much and to high glycemic indexed carbohydrates spikes your insulin levels and eventually slows down fat loss and gives your body a signal to start storing the excessive calorie intake as fat.

I hereby present to you 7 healthy carbohydrate sources!

1.) Oat (oatmeal) is cheap and good.
2.) Brown rice is a very healthy carbohydrate source to use in your food.
3.) Peas and beans
4.) Potatoes
5.) Vegetables. The more colorful the better for your body! Broccoli is very healthy and keeps your hunger down if you are dieting.
6.) Fruits. But be aware, some has a very high glycemic index like bananas.
7.) Bread with a lot of fiber.
