The Carb Conundrum is a mystery to most, so it’s time to set the record straight.
It seems carbs receive a lot of the blame these days and it’s understandable why. The consensus out there is to eat less carbs, especially if you want to lose weight and even more so if you are a Diabetic. And if you have Type 1 Diabetes, then you might feel you should avoid eating carbs as much as you can; some go as far as avoiding all carbs, which is dangerous.
But before I get ahead of myself, let me explain the differences between a healthy carb and an unhealthy carb, because it seems not very many people know there is such a thing as an unhealthy carb or at least not know what exactly is a healthy carb.
When you look at a label and you read how many carbs are in that food, there is nothing inside that Nutritional Facts panel that tells you whether those carbs are healthy or unhealthy, so of course everyone just groups all carbs together. The same for fat and sugar, too, even though there is also healthy fat and unhealthy fat and healthy sugar and unhealthy sugar. But let’s get back to the carbs.
There’s really only one way to determine if the amount of carbs listed on the Nutritional Facts panel is unhealthy or not. And it’s really simple — has the food been cooked or processed in any way?
What’s considered a “process”?
Basically, anything that comes in a bag or a cardboard box, you can be sure has been thoroughly processed. Also, is there anything on the package that would indicate it’s contaminated? For example, do you see “all natural”, “GMO-Free without the Organic seal”, “low carb”, “low fat” or “low sugar”? These are examples of products that have been stripped of any real nutrition and what’s left are the dead, contaminated carbs you would never want to touch anyway, let alone count.
But this is what most Diabetics count!
Next, what happens when you eat too few carbs? Your body runs on glucose and carbs help your liver create the glucose it needs to fuel your entire body, especially your brain. Many people and Diabetics alike, can experience hypoglycemia and in some cases, severe hypoglycemia, from eating too few carbs. This is where your blood sugar drops too low, which creates a whole slew of other problems.
So, how many carbs should a Diabetic eat at every meal? If the carbs are truly healthy and not from grains, since you have to cook grains to eat them, then you can eat as many healthy carbs as you want! Fortunately, the carb and protein ratio in plants are always perfect in truly healthy food.
Because when the food you are eating is 100% organic, which means it is pesticide-free, herbicide-free, chemical fertilizer-free and of course GMO-free, then those carbs would be the only truly healthy carbs your whole body needs daily.
MealBetix does not have any grains at all, so all the carbs come from only the healthiest plants.
And what’s the best thing about eating healthy carbs? You can never eat too much! Because that would be like saying you’re eating too healthy. Have you ever met someone who was too healthy? I haven’t.
Of course the carbs in MealBetix are the healthiest carbs you can eat, because MealBetix is the only food left here that’s 100% Organic and Raw, which means it is not cooked, processed or contaminated, in any way.
Always remember, when it comes to carbs, just like with anything else in life, it’s not how much, but rather how healthy.
