You need to be sure that you are staying away from snacks that are full of sugar and that high in fast burning carbs because this is going to be stored as fat and you are going to gain unwanted fat.But do not fall for those fad trend diets that tell you that you that carbs are bad. All of these trend diets these days want to focus on cutting carbs out of your diet completely. This article might have you thinking twice before you do this.
Too much carb cutting is not only bad for your body but it is bad for your mind as well. You will find that by depleting yourself of carbs, you are going to have serious mood swings and you may even experience mild depression. Eating a healthy snack with the right amount of good, slow burning complex carbs will help out your mood all day long.
Carbs supply your body with glycogen. This is what gives you energy to get through your day. It is important to keep carbs in your diet if you are training hard in the gym, and also if you are working hard at your job. You will end up getting yourself in trouble with over training by cutting your carbs too much.
Timing is another important thing to keep in mind when you are dieting, and cutting down on carbs. Take in more carbs in the first half of the day. The bulk of your carbs should be eaten in the first 3 meals of the day. Most of them at breakfast. This strategy will help you to control your appetite too. No carbs are to be eaten 2 hours before you go to bed. That is the worst time to eat them.
