The truth about carbs is FAR DIFFERENT than this article would lead you to believe. Watch this TEDx talk from a cutting-edge endocrinologist who is essentially HEALING her Type-2 diabetic patients by CUTTING their carbs to the bone, and WHY it is working. After that, if you'd like to know more, visit for information that will change your life.

I've been on a whole food plant based diet for three months now. Although I'm pretty strict about avoiding all refined carbs, my diet is very high in complex carbs--mostly fruits, veggies, legumes, brown rice. I never have to go hungry and I've lost 36 lbs.! But I know people who've lost weight in a variety of ways. I'm on wfpb diet for health reason; never tried it before!

Love the carbs, simple, complex or non-digestible. Avoid processed, unless I need a quick blood sugar boost. Happy tummy, happy brain, happy mouth.

I find carbs, although necessary, as the very things I need to avoid to lose weight.

it seems that people going the low carb route end up eliminating so many fruits and veg, and end up eating way too much protein and fat. I feel a lot better by drastically cutting out most grains, but I'm not giving up potatoes or any vegetable or fruit. Eating potatoes didn't make me fat.
