Bought protein powder and discovereda new nutritional fact re fiber!

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Protein powder is 130 calories 4 carbs n 30 protein w 5 fiber; according to the trainer I can deduct fiber amount from the carbs!
I haven't read anything bout that here, but I may not know where to look, either.
It's hard to eat anything with fruit or vegetables because they are so high in carbs; however, they are also high in fiber!
hmmm not going to take it as gospel but not going to fear the carbs as much now either.
I am happy I bought the protein powder!

    Unless you're diabetic, the only carbs to fear are simple carbs . . . white potatoes, white flour, white sugar, processed foods. Complex carbs are best for the body, but like everything else, have to be eaten in moderation like everything else.

    It's all about balance. If you eat carbs, pair it with a protein. And make sure you have a source of good fat (like olive oil or avocado.)
