quote:Simple carbs are carbs that your body will readily use and burn off fast. These consist of fruits and veggies. THESE ARE EXCELLENT CARBS, because you wont gain weight eating them infact I might even lose a few pounds. Simple carbs are also an excellent source of dietary fibre and energy.
First, vegetables probably contain mostly complex carbohydrates. And I'd put potatoes and yams in the vegetable category.Second, you could easily gain a lot of weight eating them. Whether one gains real weight depends totally on calories in and calories out. And sugar counts for calories.quoteatmeal and potatoes/yams.
This is the same mistake again. Carbs have nothing to do with this. It's just calories in, calories out. It takes same energy to burn off a pound of fat that started out as fat from fat as it does a pound of fat that was converted from carbs.quote:2) Complex carbs for the most part are not the best for you, because they usually require alot of energy use to burn them off
That is true for simple carbs, complex carbs, proteins, and fat.quote:and if you DON't burm them off they will store as fat.
You must fast (only water) for two days and see what happens. That will tell you whether the gas is from the atmosphere or not. (If you had a generalized malabsorption problem, consuming any carbohydrate would still give you a false positive result.)quote:My problem is that I fart like a maniac. REgardless of what and/or when I eat, I have a loooot of gas. I think I fart more than 150 times a day.
