Carbs aren’t making you fat

cheat meal

Many people are still under the misconception that carbs are the reason they are overweight; that’s just not true. You can be on a high-carb diet, and still lose weight. I’ve actually reduced my body fat percentage by increasing carbohydrates from adopting a more plant-based diet, and eating more beans and grains, while eating less animal protein. It’s the excess calories that turn into fat, not carbs.

The buttered bread, deep fried potatoes, and fatty meat adds a wallop of calories too.
