Carbohydrates In the Daily Diet
There has been much debate, confusion and controversy surrounding carbohydrates since the debut of the first fad carb-restricted weight loss plan some decades ago - and even today, the discussion continues.

While trying to lose pounds, it's always a great idea to choose as many low calorie foods as possible; this means that you'll get to eat more food, thus ending up with a fuller tummy. Instead of wigging-out about those carbs, opt for the whole grain foods instead.
