Thinking of carbs as the enemy is so 1990’s.

Most of the world’s healthiest foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, are primarily carbohydrates. People are so conditioned to thinking and actually believing that certain carbs bloat them. If they only knew what was actually happening inside the body, they would think and believe differently.

Carbs are your body’s preferred fuel source. They are not stored in body tissue, only by your blood and liver in a limited amount. So the more you exercise, the more you need to take in. Without enough carbohydrates, your body will shut down during hard physical exertions. Too many carbohydrates however, and they get stored as body fat.

Why eating your quality meals with carbs is fine

It’s those refined sugary foods and pastries you eat that make you store body fat. If you skimp on carbs, you will simply not be able to complete your EFF workouts in style. EFF Nutrition will teach you how to feel your way through choosing the right amount of carbs to fuel your workouts, without going overboard. Focus on your emotion. The body releases chemicals that send signals to the brain that allow us to feel full, satisfied, empty etc.

You must become aware of these feelings. This is your ultimate tool to becoming Forever Lean. Emotion. Focus on what your body NEEDS not what you WANT. There you go. Work on 90% NEED and 10% WANT after you achieve your goal. For now, work on 100% NEED and 0% WANT.

Refined Carbs

Refined or white carbs and sugars have a high glycemic index, which can be like poison to your body.

They cause an insulin response that can send your blood sugar levels soaring, then rapidly dropping. This “sugar rush” will leave you feeling lethargic, and definitely in no shape for an intense workout session. Healthy carbs generally have a low glycemic index, meaning that they supply our body with a slow, steady stream of blood sugar, giving you constant energy to get you through your daily activities and fuel your INTENSE EFF workouts.

What are Good Carbs

Be sure to choose “good Quality carbs” each day.

The majority of healthy carbs will come from:

• Whole fruits (an occasional juice is OK, diluted, as well but whole fruit is preferable)

• Whole vegetables

• Whole grains

• Dairy (some dairy products contain a decent amount of carbs)
