When most people want to shed some weight, they drastically cut down on the amount of carbohydrate food they take.
If you are one of such persons (or maybe you are the type that feed voraciously on white rice, white bread, potato chips and can’t eat without a bottle of carbonated drink), you are at risk of dying before your time, research shows.
To live healthier and longer, a recent study published in The Lancet Public Health recommends that you strike a balance in your carbohydrate intake. According to the study, that means getting 50-55% of your daily calorie intake from carbohydrates.
It’s also important what kind of carbohydrates you consume. To maintain a healthy lifestyle, you should take more of good carbohydrates like whole wheat, oats, corn, quinoa, brown rice, vegetables, fruits etc. and less processed carbohydrates.
