If fast weight loss is your objective, carbohydrates is certainly not your best friend, as it enhances your blood glucose level. This triggers your body to release insulin, a hormone that is responsible to convert unused calories into fat! Remember that intake of carbohydrates, especially basic carbohydrates (refined sugar, white bread, and so on.) need to be kept to a very little. It is constantly recommended that you adhere to healthy carb sources, however, such as sweet potatoes, entire meal bread, etc. That being said, do not attempt to completely eliminate carbohydrates from your diet, as they are still the main source of energy that your body use.
