Do carbs make you fat?
Everybody’s gone keto crazy these days. Now and then, we get a diet that just blows people away. They love it, and keto is one of those diets at the moment. I can tell you guys in another five years there’ll be some other diet. It’ll be the iRobot diet or the Apple phone diet, or the Antarctic is melting diet. Who knows what kind of diets are going to come out. Sometimes diets seem like the flavor of the month.
My advice is to forget about the keto diet. You need carbohydrates, and I’m going to tell you why.
Carb is not a four-letter word.
The only carbs you need to avoid are the wrong kind of carbs. Don’t let people brainwash you into believing that all carbs are akin to radioactive nuclear waste.
These are the carbs you should be avoiding: candy, ice cream, soda drinks, and white, processed bread, and donuts.
The carbs that you should feel good about including in your diet are sweet potatoes, broccoli, vegetables, and fruits – to name just a few.
I’ve had several comments on my YouTube channel telling me that I’m behind the times, and I don’t realize how bad fruit and vegetables are for your health. I’ve even be told that we should only be eating meat.

I stand 100% behind my perspective. You need starch and fiber in your diet. Good luck getting fiber from a two-pound steak.
We want to cultivate a diverse population of beneficial bacteria in our gut. We can achievethat by including the right kinds of sugars and carbs in our diet.
Of course, there are bad, really bad, good, and outstanding sugars. The trick is knowing which ones to avoid and which ones to include in your diet.
You can’t tell me for one moment that a sweet potato is going to make you fat or sick. Focus on choosing the right carbohydrates, and your weight will move in the right direction.
When you first start on a weight loss program, you’re going to lose a lot of fluid and probably a few pounds from the bowel that needs cleaning out. And then you’ll plateau. When that happens, you need to keep up your physical activity and continue to fine-tune your diet.
Carbs will only make you fat if you eat the wrong kind. But, anything can you make you fat if you eat too much of it and don’t keep active.
