It's a yummy breakfast and delightful snack.
You Can Have Your Carbs & Eat 'Em Too!
Will carbohydrates be the downfall of Western Civilization? Do we need to load up on protein to lose weight? Or will a diet higher in protein destroy your kidneys and bones? These are significant questions in a very confusing dieting world. The controversy rages as we sit down to breakfast and cast a skeptical eye at both the nutrition article in the morning newspaper and our cereal bowl full of grain products.
The Body Makes it Simple.
Everything we eat turns into glucose in our blood. The real question is how fast this occurs. If you eat simple carbohydrates, such as sugar and white flour, your blood sugar will spike because these foods are quickly converted to glucose. If you eat a lot of simple carbs, you can have very high blood sugar for several hours. Blood sugar levels can't remain high without damage, so insulin is released to move all the blood sugar into our muscles and fat stores. Experts now agree that a lot of insulin results in hunger pangs and an overworked pancreas which can promote adult onset diabetes. Experts also tell us diets excessively high in protein can impact kidney and bone health. And what about fat? There's no question that too much fat contributes to heart disease and some types of cancer. So what's the answer to this complex issue?
Protein & Fats.
If we can slow down the absorption of sugar during digestion, we can better control spikes in blood sugar and everything that follows. Protein and fats are harder to break down, so people eating diets rich in these foods mat feel less hungry and have better control over blood sugar. This is one argument for "high protein, low carb" diets. However diets high in fat and protein may not be particularly safe. Nor are these diets any more effective in weight control over the long term.
Fiber is very effective in showing digestion of starch into sugars in the stomach and it has major health benefits. Fiber, in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle, promotes good digestion and regularity, and it contributes to good heart health because of essential oils that are known to decrease cholesterol. Fiber is also known to help prevent certain types of cancer. So if fiber-by definition-is a carbohydrates that is the key.
Complex carbohydrates, such as whole grains (brown rice, whole wheat), are rich in fiber and win in the long run when compared to simple carbohydrates like white flour and sugar. Also keep in mind that fiber is less than half the calories of fat. And don't kid yourself, calories do count!
