Hey, it’s Coach Josh!
From the title of this post, you may think that I’m going to tell you to REDUCE your carb intake which is actually the exact opposite of what this newsletter is about. In fact, many people will find that they can actually eat more carbs and lose more fat when they follow the simple advice I’m about to give you.
You see, the typical American diet is full of processed, sugar-laden carbs that contain very little if any fiber. High-sugar/low-fiber carbs are what I refer to as “fat-storing” carbs…they’re definitely the type of carbs you’ll want to avoid if your goal is to obtain a flat stomach and a trim waistline.
But carbs alone aren’t the enemy. Instead, if you “reverse” the typical American trend and begin consuming carbs that contain LESS sugar and MORE fiber, you can actually begin enjoying more carbs in your diet while dropping more of those troublesome pounds.
The other benefit to these carb sources is that low-sugar, high-fiber carbs are generally minimally processed (if at all) by nature.
Some examples of my favorite high-fiber, lower-sugar carbs are:
-Beans (i.e. kidney beans, black beans, black-eyed peas, chickpeas, pinto beans, lentils, etc.)
-Most Fruit (apples, oranges, apricots, peaches, pears, kiwi, mango, melon, plums, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, cherries) – While these are a bit higher in sugar, they’re very slow absorbing and super high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and other important nutrients… so still a top carb choice.
-All green vegetables
-Wild rice, brown rice
Now, if you’d like to gain even greater control of your body’s ability to process carbohydrates, this is something I had developed for me and I use it with every single carb meal I eat. It really gives me an edge:
