How to Incorporate Carbohydrates Into Your Diet
Dr. Travis Stork: Believe it or not carbs, they are our primary source of fuel, but what I like to say is it’s good carbs and maybe less good carbs because, hey you know what, it’s fuel. And sometimes when you’re working out, it’s A-okay, just some plain all sugar is good for you. You use as fuel.
But the one thing that I was like to emphasize to the people was when we say bad carbs we’re really talking about simple sugars, the kind you find in soda, white bread.
LL Cool J: Cheesecake.
Dr. Travis Stork: Yeah.
Dr. Jim Sears: Cheesecake.
Dr. Travis Stork: And even -- here’s what crazy, people don’t realize even rice. Rice is basically sugar and the less you go with what we call good carbs and those are the whole grain version. This is brown rice, whole wheat bread, and here’s what I want everyone to understand. I only learned this after I went to medical school but whole grains, beautiful right?
Dr. Lisa Masterson: Yeah, beautiful.
Dr. Jim Sears: Yes.
Dr. Travis Stork: So endosperm, bran and germ, if you look at this little graphic here. What happens when they refined this and turned it to say white bread? They get rid of all the good stuff. They get rid of the bran and they get rid of the germ that has all the nutrients and you’re left with basically the endosperm.
Dr. Jim Sear: Yeah.
LL Cool J: Yes, it’s pretty bad.
Dr. Travis Stork: What I really want to focus on is why we need all these things so you need carbohydrates. You just want to focus on the good carbs, the whole grain carbohydrate.
