Are Carbs Really the Enemy?

January 10th, 2018

Editor’s note: McKel Hill, MS, RDN, LDN is a Dietitian and Founder of Nutrition Stripped.

Over the years, I’ve found that a lot of my clients and readers of Nutrition Stripped are cautious of eating carbohydrates with reservation based on skewed articles in the media supporting X diet over another, magazines sharing no-carb diets, ketogenic this or that. But, have you ever wondered how this important macronutrient plays an essential role in your everyday health, along with a few ways to incorporate a healthy mix of whole-food carbohydrates into your diet?

    Fantastic, a sensible approach to the carb controversy, yes or no, and yes, I rediscovered the Honey Roasted Carrots again. Lovely.

    Thank you for sharing this! I’m always surprised how many different diets and fads there are, but eating good food never goes out of style. I just heard about the Fast Diet – where you fast 2 days a week and then eat regularly for the rest of the time. I feel like I can never keep up with it all!

  3. With how individual nutrition is for every body, I’m sad that entire macronutrients get such a bad rap. Anyone who says that a specific diet will work for 100% of people out there fail to understand some of the complicated nature of nutrition science. I’ve been experimenting lately with a lower carb diet with great success, but I also have friends who’ve tried it and found that their bodies completely revolt in the absence of carbs.

    Love the focus on healthier carbs from whole foods here! Even for people on a ketogenic diet, that’s where they should be getting their smaller amount of carbs from!

    You need carbs for energy and I would never cut them out, but I find limiting my starchy carbs to three servings a day definitely helped me lose weight and manage my PCOS issues.
