Are carbs the enemy?

Post #1

Post by Goose »

So I eat carbs at almost every meal. Mostly fruit (and veg), whole wheat breads, whole wheat pastas, whole wheat cereals, brown rice, and such. I find I tend to "bonk" when I workout intensely if I don't take in sufficient carbs.

Does anyone else experience this?

What are your views on carbs?

It doesn't seem to have ever made much difference what I ate or even whether I ate before workouts so I don't pay much attention. My food intake has varied considerably over the years -- both in quality and quantity -- without any apparent effect.

Perhaps it is a high metabolism (or inefficient digestive system) that allows me to eat plenty of all food categories without problems and without increase in body fat.

People just want to eat whatever junk they want and still look amazing.
