It seems like a constant topic of conversation among my clients and everyone I run into who is trying to drop some weight. "Should I take carbs out of my diet??" I stand true to my belief that carbs (the right kind) provide our energy and we need them in our daily diet. If we educate our clients on good vs. bad carbs, they will have the ability to choose the correct foods in reasonable portions to allow for an ideal weight loss or weight maintenance plan. Time of day is also a concern and I always encourage most healthy carb consumption to be early in the day.
