High Carb foods you should avoid

There is no doubt that car­bo­hy­drates play an impor­tant role for proper func­tion­ing of our immune sys­tem, fer­til­iza­tion, patho­gen­e­sis, blood clot­ting and human devel­op­ment. Defi­ciency of car­bo­hy­drate can severely dam­age func­tion­ing of these sys­tems. But on other end, exces­sive con­sump­tion of car­bo­hy­drates can cause obe­sity, type 2 dia­betes, stroke, coro­nary artery dis­ease and cancer.

It’s best for you to con­sume max­i­mum 80 grams of car­bo­hy­drates a day. The Amer­i­can Dia­betes Asso­ci­a­tion reports that peo­ple with dia­betes should gen­er­ally limit car­bo­hy­drate intake to 45 to 60 grams per meal, depend­ing on what their doc­tor or dietit­ian approves.

Carb rich foods are harder for the body to burn off as fuel and so make the per­son gain weight.
