Choosing proper food is a big part of losing weight and staying fit. One of the questions EZ Slim fans frequently ask is “what type of foods should I eat during my weight loss journey with EZ Slim?” And the advice is that they eat a balanced meal of carbs, protein, healthy fats and fruits.
Lots of people are surprised when we ask them to eat foods with carbs because according to them, carbohydrate is not good for weight loss journey. That, however, is one of the biggest misconceptions about weight loss.
Studies have shown you can lose weight on a high-carb diet too. Moreover, while trying to lose weight, you need to stay active and carbohydrates provide you with the energy you need. They take a longer time to breakdown in your body thus giving you a feeling of being full longer.
Even though you don’t need a special diet to lose weight while using EZ Slim, customers are advised to eat weight loss enhancing foods to achieve faster results and of course be able to keep the fat off once they achieve their desired weight loss goal. EZ Slim presents 5 healthy carbs to eat on your weight loss journey.
Whole Grain Bread and Pasta
First, not all bread and whole grains are weight loss friendly. Stay away from refined grains like bagel, white bread and other processed carbs. Instead, stick to bread and pasta made from whole grains. This not only helps you lose weight but also protects you from having type 2 diabetes and heart disease caused by obesity.
Oats contain beta-glucan which help lower cholesterol. Research shows that having oatmeal for breakfast promotes weight loss by preventing blood sugar spike and keeping you full longer.
When we think grains, we hardly think about sorghum and barley but these lesser-known grains are high in protein, fibre, and B vitamins. Above all, it keeps you full, which is a great thing if you are planning to lose weight
The fibre content in sweet potatoes is perfect for weight loss. Fibre slows down your digestion and enhances satiety which means you eat fewer calories. Sweet potato and corn are the most carb-rich veggies.
Veggies are important too because a plant-based diet is one of the most effective ways to lose weight. Guess what? Vegetables are actually carbs but they are rich in vitamins, high in fibre and most importantly low in calories. This is why we encourage everyone to include veggies in their diets. Increase your intake of carrots, peas, beans, beets and lentils.
When you are trying to lose weight, portion control is key. Just because we say selected carbs are helpful with weight loss does not mean you should overindulge. Avoid refined sugars and eat your carbs the smart way and it’s better to eat sweet deserts after a meal of veggies, protein or starchy carbs because the sugar won’t impact your blood sugar as much as when you eat it on an empty stomach.
