When you reach a certain age, it is surely right to cut back on your carb intake. However, cutting it off can be slightly trickier. Carbs are an important source of fuel for the body. By eliminating carbs from your diet can deprive you of important nutrients and may even result in unhealthy weight loss, which is surely not something you want. The best thing is to rearrange your diet plan and include healthy and good carbs that are rich in fibre and have antioxidant properties, such as whole fruit, legumes, potatoes and whole grains.
