Blindly assuming that all carbs are bad is a giant mistake. When we make blanket statements like ‘don’t eat carbs’ it only confuses the message we send to the general public. A dogmatic, black & white approach to carbs is hurting the mindset of what we can & can’t eat. The idea that carbs are the enemy is a common appeal to emotion & popular folklore rather than the full range of scientific evidence. Your carb intake should be individualized according to your personal preference, tolerance, and athletic and aesthetic goals.
Me—my carbs of choice are white rice, sweet potatoes, & white potatoes. And lots of ‘em, especially post workout.
