Mary, CARBS are good!

You need 50 to 60 percent of your calories from carbs.

You can eat two sanwiches, but you just have to eat whole grain bread.
Where I live, I found Diet whole grain bread that is only 50 calories per slice, and no fat.

The carbs that are bad are white bread, white sugar, regular potatoes, white rice.

What happened is that from the popularity of the ATkins diet, everyone including me thought that you were not supposed to eat them.

Then I found out the truth, that 50 to 60 percent of your calories should come from carbs, and 20 to 25 percent from protein, and around 15 to 25 per cent should come from fat.

That is how I arived at FITDAY, because the notebook was tedious to do my tallies constantly.

Eat carb, count carbs, eat the correct amount, and don't go over.


Brown rice, veggies, fruits, oats, anything natural is extremely good for you.
