We see a lot of chatter about carbohydrate in our Bariatric Surgery Eating Group on Facebook. Some people think carbs are bad and try to never eat them, others fear carbs and still others love them… especially the less healthy ones.
Are you confused and don’t know what to believe about carbs?
Every friend tells you something different? To make it more confusing, some post surgery medical teams advise very little carbohydrate in the diet while others caution their patients not to cut too low. This idea that carbs are bad is flat-out wrong diet information and leads to unhealthful eating. Let’s get the facts you need.
In this podcast I chat with Jenifer Tharnai from El Paso, Texas who is registered dietitian nutritionist and bariatric dietitian. She founded Archaic Nutrition & Lifestyle, a nutrition & wellness practice that helps clients manage diabetes, enjoy heart health, and achieve desired weight loss. Her focus is a whole foods approach instead of clinging to super foods or fad diets as a short cut to health & wellness.
