Healthy Carbs – The Best Carbs To Eat For Muscle Gain And Fat Loss

What are the very best carbs to eat as part of your muscle building and fat loss program?

Most people make the issue of choosing healthy carb sources for their diet into something way more complicated than it needs to be. With so much conflicting nutrition advice, it’s no wonder that this is the case.

However, putting together a list of “good carbs” for your diet is actually very simple…

First off, no matter what type of carbohydrate rich food you eat, in the end it will always be broken down into its simplest form of glucose. In that sense, the whole idea of “good carbs vs. bad carbs” is misleading, since at the end of the day, a carb is a carb.

The only real difference is in how those carbs are “packaged up”. Some are found in high fiber, micronutrient dense sources, while others are found in nutritionally empty foods.

So, in order to ensure that you’re receiving all of the vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and fiber that you need for optimal functioning, the best carbohydrates are simply those that have been minimally refined, such as starchy carbs, fruits and vegetables.

Here is a list of good carbs to build muscle and lose fat optimally: Oatmeal, Rice, Quinoa, Potatoes, Sweet potatoes, Yams, Ezekial bread, Whole grain cereals, Pita, Pasta, Fruits, Vegetables.

As long as 80-90% of your daily carb intake is based around these healthy carb sources, and you’re getting in 1-2 servings of fruit and 2 servings of vegetables daily, there really isn’t much else to worry about when it comes to choosing “healthy carbs”.

Don’t worry about the specific absorption rate of each carbohydrate source or what you read in some bogus article outlining “which carbs to avoid” – just get 80-90% of your carb intake from the foods listed and you’ll be good to go.
