The Right Kind of Carbohydrates Carbohydrates get a bad rap. Many diets have become geared around NOT eating any Carbohydrates in order to see weight loss. Ok first of all this is absolutely nuts… not only will you be tired and miserable but sooner or later your body will crave carbs you will give in and go to the carbs that will really do a number on your body… you know the kind .. muffins, bagels and white bread. Many diets work great for a short period of time when they eliminate carbs… However, when people reach their goals and go back to eating Carbs they put the weight right back on. That’s why the Atkins Diets and South Beach Diets are all referred to as Yo-Yo Diets.
