If you’re tempted to go on one of those low-carbohydrate diets, consider this first. Consuming too few carbs can leave you feeling sapped of energy – both mentally and physically.
Instead of counting carbohydrates, focus on the type of carbs you’re eating. Limit simple carbs, which are found in foods like white breads, potatoes and sugary snacks; these carbs can give you a brief energy spike but can also be followed by a crash that leaves you even more depleted than before you ate.
By choosing complex carbohydrates – found in whole grains and breads – you’re giving your body a sustained source of energy that’ll keep you moving until your next meal or snack.
