Blog2018 ≫ I watched The Truth About Carbs

I watched "The Truth About Carbs" with one of the kids favourite TV docors Doctor Xand last night. You'll never believe it but broccoli and apples are better for you than jaffa cakes and burgers, let me write that down!

Interesting that most people idea of carbs is broadly right though. When people are avoiding carbs for health reasons they are avoiding the bad carbs anyway, not fruit and veg.

Carbs include starch, but also sugar and fibre. Eat less starch and sugar but more fibre. That is not new, but I suppose the programme didn't claim to be new.
