Counting Carbs

Article care of midwestsupplements.com

OK. This may sound extremely obvious to some of you, but I've seen the mistake made so many times, I feel it is necessary to include as a weekly tip. Trust me. Tons of people don't realize what I am about to tell you, or they simply choose to ignore it. It completely blows me away every time I hear someone doing (or not doing in this case) this. If you are one of these people, I'm not trying to insult your intelligence, because I realize that you aren't alone. Actually, several people are making the same mistake you are.

Many people are following the popular low carbohydrate diets these. At least they think they are. If you are following a low carb diet, under 100g per day, and aren't losing weight, then more than likely you aren't counting your carbohydrates correctly. The most common mistake I see is not counting the carbohydrates that you drink. Yes, carbs in fluids must be counted also. If you are drinking milk, it has carbs. Fruit juice - carbs. Soft drinks that aren't diet - carbs. Meal replacement powders - carbs. I've seen individuals who thought they were eating 50g per day of carbs that were actually well over 200g per day. "You mean you count stuff you drink too?!?" Yes, and if you pour pure table sugar down your throat you have to count it also. Any carb that goes into your mouth has to be counted. That includes the light dressing that you put on top of your salad, and the croutons, and the carrots that are in the salad. Garden salads with lots of veggies in them can also surprisingly add up.

I'm not a big advocate of following super low carb diets for long periods of time. However, if you are following one, you should be losing weight. If you aren't, take a reality check and start counting *ALL* of your carbohydrate intake.
