When it comes to fat loss, your carbohydrate intake must be earned unless those carbohydrates are coming from fruits and veggies. In other words you have to exercise if you want those other carbohydrates and you have to do two things:
1) Focus on whole grain, unprocessed carbohydrates.
2) Save those carbohydrates for within 1-2 hours after exercise.
When it does come time for you to ingest those carbohydrates try to minimize your intake of carbohydrates sources such as sports drinks, soda, cereals, muffins and bagels. Basically all the junk. Some preferred sources of carbohydrates outside of fruits and vegetables are:
- Sweet potatoes
- Steel cut or whole rolled oats
- Oat bran
- Sprouted grain breads, English muffins or tortilla’s
