Dieta Herbalife e carboidrati
We often talk about proteine Herbalife and how they are essential for the development of lean mass and for athletic performance but... we don't want to forget about carbohydrates, right? These macronutrients are an essential source of energy, essential for any daily activity, from waking up to rest at night, including physical exercise.

What exactly are carbohydrates?

When we talk about these famous carbohydrates, the mind immediately wanders over a nice plate of pasta or smells the fragrance of freshly baked bread ... but these macronutrients are also present in large quantities in fruit and vegetables, honey, milk and, not least, in sugar. There are really many foods that can supply us with carbohydrates, and suffering a shortage of them really seems impossible, but the importance of preferring healthier sources over others must be underlined.

Good carbs and bad carbs

It doesn't seem very scientific to divide carbohydrate sources into 'good' and 'bad', but all in all, it's not all that wrong or superficial. And since we are not all doctors, even for ordinary mortals a distinction must be made that is simple to remember and therefore to put into practice. Good carbohydrates include legumes, whole grains, fruit, vegetables and dairy products (low-fat cheese, yogurt and skimmed milk. In these foods we find many simple and natural sugars, easy to digest and very energetic. They also contain fiber, vitamins and mineral salts in abundance. When instead we refer to bad carbohydrates, we mean all those excessively processed foods, rich in 'empty' calories, and which can offer very little to the body. Among these we list refined white sugar, sweets in general, common bread, bread sticks or crackers.

How to fill up on healthy carbohydrates

The answer is simple: just start any meal with a large portion of vegetables, raw or cooked, and base them on snacks on fruit; for breakfast skim milk and unsweetened muesli. It is not easy to calculate the minimum daily carbohydrate intake for a person, because the intake varies from individual to individual and it is not easy to make an average. In fact, it depends on gender, age, daily physical activities, type of job, climatic conditions and any health problems (primarily the diabetes). In any case, never follow a too restrictive diet where most sources of carbohydrates are eliminated because in the long run there would be no improvement but a deterioration of all organs and sports performance.
