Good Carbs for dieting

Introduction And Background

When we think of dieting, we automatically make a plan to stay away from fatty foods. We also make a plan to stay away from all the carbs in our diet since they are also an aid to weight gain. So this topic might seem a little funny to you because who would think that carbs are good for dieting? To be honest, they are not. You should stay away from carbs altogether but you must know a little science to know that carbohydrates are important for digestion and usage of other nutrients as well so you might as well take in the good carbs in your diet so that your weight loss process does not slow down immensely. However, what are the good carbs for dieting then? Will they actually help in weight loss?

Why Eat Carbs In The First Place?
These questions have already been answered above but for a little further information know that carbohydrates generally leave you feeling full. Your brain also only uses carbs for energy so you cannot deprive it completely of something that it so regularly and always wants! No one is telling you to keep eating carbs. They’re not good if you eat them a lot but some specific ones you should have in controlled amounts because they are actually good for your dieting.

What Carbs Are Good For Dieting?
Now that you realize that completely cutting down on carbs is not the only option, you would want to know which carbs are the ones that will help in dieting. Well, here is a list of some of them that you will probably like and might even have from time to time already.

  • Barley
    This particular food is also taken as breakfast in many countries because it is extremely fulfilling, does not have that many calories and also raises the metabolic level to start your day. It is also high in fiber so that will aid to your bowel movement and digestion. What more can you want from a carb?!
  • Green Peas
    This might come as a surprise because most people consider peas to be a vegetable. It is but that does not mean it cannot be good in carbs value! Most people like to eat green peas so this is an added plus. It is low in calories but also has a hormone in it that reduces hunger and also induces your brain levels to be more alert. Suppressing the appetite and strengthening the brain, this carb gives you more than you ask for!
  • Wheat Bread Or Wheat Pasta
    We sometimes make the mistake of just cutting out pasta and bread from our life and then we get sad over the matter because they are two of our favourite things. Well, you do not need to cut out on them. There are whole wheat bread and whole wheat pasta available in the market and they will gladly appease your hunger and also give you the feeling of eating something you really like. But do not overdo it. You need to have it in controlled amounts. Just because is it whole wheat does not mean you can eat as much as you like!
  • Acorn Squash
    It is not very common but is a good carbohydrate and is also high in fiber which is again, perfect for your digestion and if you are having problems related to it.
  • Beans
    They do not only have carbohydrates but they are good in fiber and proteins and minerals as well. Beans are actually quite a common staple food in a few countries of Asia and are fast gaining popularity as a diet food due to their satiety properties and also few calories.
  • Popcorn
    This might be your favourite thing on the list. Popcorn are considered to be a very good diet food. It keeps you full, it has a high fiber content and it also has few calories in contrast to the amount it is! It makes for a perfect snack and if you are looking for a treat, you might as well eat popcorn rather than anything else which is probably way more fattening!
  • Oatmeal
    This is present in most cereals and is again taken for breakfast. It is a perfect thing to start your day with and there are many oatmeal cereals present and if you are taking them already, you do not need to cut them out of your diet.

Conclusion
As you can see, not all carbs are fattening and not all carbs aid to weight gain. There are some foods which can help you lose weight and control your appetite as well. All you have to do is know which ones they are.
