The fear of carbs is a common one in today’s society, but is undoubtedly unnecessary when a whole foods, non-processed food diet is followed. Healthy carbohydrates from these sources are not the enemy, because their fibers help slow down blood sugar, while also providing support for the heart, digestive system, satiety levels, and even your weight.

Unlike refined and processed foods, whole food sources of carbohydrates are used differently in the body, not just to keep you energized, but because they also provide nutrients to keep your hormones stable, promote healthy brain function, and they can even help you sleep and recover from exercise.

Fiber is also one of the best foods to aid in weight maintenance since it’s a calorie-free carbohydrate that your body uses during elimination to whisk away harmful fats and toxins with it out of the body. To be sure you avoid unhealthy sources of complex carbs, we’re going to show you the very best ones to eat, recipes to help you get your fill, and even provide you with some reading information and product suggestions too. 

Get energized and keep your heart healthy with all complex carbs and fiber!
