For years now I've been aware of my carb intake, as I work on keeping my high blood sugar under control.
And it is work!!
Every day I judge my food intake - not only on how it tastes, or what I feel like eating, but on how "good for me" it is... I've read dozens of books on different eating styles that are supposed to be "good for" pre-diabetics and diabetics.
Basically, a keto diet aims at lowering carb intake to the point that the body must burn fat for fuel. The list of food high in carbs is longer than one might think. It includes not only bread and sweets, fruit and fruit juices (or any sweetened drinks) but corn, potatoes, rice, carrots, peas, beans... And the list goes on!
This is not the food my body craves now that winter is here!
While I'm sure I can benefit from lowering my carb intake, these two books aren't very helpful in the winter world I live in!
They will be heading back to the library very quickly!
