…NO MATTER WHAT THE INTERNET SAYS.
First, the Atkins diet claimed to be the solution to weight loss and health. It wasn’t. Now, its younger cousin, the keto diet, is implying that you just weren’t restricting carbohydrates quite enough for it to work properly.
Can we stop demonizing carbohydrates already?
GOOD VS BAD CARBS? NOT A THING.
There are hundreds of articles on the internet giving you lists of carbohydrates that you “should” and “shouldn’t” eat, pitting them off against each other like some sort of gladiator fight to the death.
Of course, certain foods have more nutrients than others, and yes, the fibrous carbs are going to have the best overall impact on our health. Can you do me a favor though? Seeing as food doesn’t have a moral value, can we stop using the words “good” and “bad” when it comes to what we eat? It’s not helpful, and I’d argue it’s actually harmful to our relationship with food.
