Health magazine editors share advice on how to manage a carb-rich diet.
Carbs have a bad rep in the diet world but Frances Largeman-Roth and Ellen Kunes turn that notion on its head with carb-filled recipes that help not hurt the weight loss process. They focus on "Resistant Starch" which act as powerful metabolism boosters and appetite suppressants and can be found in foods like cooled potatoes and rice. According to research outlined by Kunes and Largeman-Roth, carbs shrink fat cells, boost fat burning, increase muscle mass, curb cravings and lower cholesterol and triglycerides among other benefits. It's all about diet management versus deprivation so you can keep the carbs and lose the weight responsibly.
