'Slow Carbs' and the Truth About Low-Carb Diets

You‘ll be surprised to hear me say that carbohydrates are the most important thing you can eat for health and weight loss. Why? Because all plant foods are carbohydrates. These are the good, “slow” carbs you’ll find in fruits, vegetables, and even nuts and seeds. Slow carbs don’t spike your blood sugar or insulin, like carbs from pasta, bread, potatoes or rice. Instead, they fill your body with fiber. And they contain amazing molecules called phytochemicals. Studies show that powerful phytochemicals like glucosinolates, found in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, may help reduce your risk of cancer. Most colorful plant foods are full of good, slow carbs. Learn more about all the beneficial things they’ll do for your health and your weight.

  2. But these so called experts never say whether you should be eating these veggies raw or cooked. If heat destroys the nutrients, then they should warn us that we should only eat them raw.

  3. 1) Doc, what you're describing is the Keto diet. And in an effort to add clarity 2) There are essential proteins and essential fats but there are no essential carbs.

  4. Hahaha i started the first 30 seconds and turned it off. And then reclicked it thinking i should hear him out and I'm glad i did lol. Thanks doc

  5. Fruit is fructose…quickly metabolized by the liver into fat…also causing fatty liver. If you must have carbs have glucose (grains, pastas). If you're trying to lose weight dont eat fruit.

  6. Americans eating tons of processed sugar now thinking carbs give you metabolic syndrome while mankind has been surviving on normal carb diets since the invention of agriculture
