Restricted Carbohydrate Dieting Can Be Confusing

As you can see above, carbs can be so confusing - at least they are for Linda. Just look at her, frightened....scared....shaking and going ape (or is that A-I-P?) over an innocent potato.

Potatoes are actually one of the good carbs, one of the complex carbs. The only thing that should scare anyone about a natural complex carb potato is if they have to spell it without a dictionary or spell checker. (Would that be potato OR potatoe?)

So if you are feeling a bit like Linda, Diet Bites has several Carb Articles which help explain 'probably more than you want to know' about carbs.  We've even got a nifty Digestive Breakdown Chart for you!  

Good Carbs vs Bad Carbs

Learn about the good carbs and the not so good carbs - as well as how those good carbs can be an important part of your daily diet.  

As a note, several dieters have achieved great success using the popular carb-regulated diets, so there's definitely something about those carbs.

Foods High in Carbohydrate Gram Content

If it's white, the food is likely to be high in carbohydrate content. Keep in mind that there are two types of carbohydrates: Simple and Complex.

The Complex Carbs will add a burst of nutrition and energy to your diet plan and can be a good friend amid the weight loss phase.

Here is our chart referencing the carb gram content of popular foods. Note that meats tend to have zero calories when served without breading, sauces or dips.
