KOMPAS.com – you are classified as people who can not be separated from the rice? Relax, do not have to force myself eliminate carbs from your diet if you are unable to do so. However, carbohydrates are the nutrients that the macro function is to provide energy for us.

To give you rice lovers berlega liver, according to Brierley Wright, MS, RD, Nutrition Communications experts from the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, there are six reasons why you should still eat carbohydrates.

1. Carbohydrates help to boost mood. Karbo support the production of serotonin, the chemical in the brain that causes feelings of pleasure. Studies of the Archives of Internal Medicine showed that people who undergo low karbo heavy diet for a year (only ate about 1 / 2 cup cooked rice or a slice of bread), tend to experience depression, anxiety, and irritability. Levels far exceeding those who consume low-fat diet high in carbohydrates, which only eat low-fat dairy products, whole grains, fruits, and nuts.

2. Carbohydrates help to prevent weight gain. In fact, help you lose weight. How is this possible? To be sure, researchers from Brigham Young University in Utah, U.S., found that those who increased intake of fiber in general will lose weight. This occurs in middle-aged woman who monitored his diet for two years. Conversely, women who reduced their food intake of fiber from just gained weight.

3. Carbohydrates good for the heart.

5. Carbohydrates help to sharpen the memory. Overweight women who underwent low-karbo diet for a week (really do not eat carbs) apparently worse scores on tests of memory (such as: why did I get into this room?). Their value is diminished in visuospatial memory (remember the location in the map test) than those who follow a low calorie diet. This is an indication the American Dietetic Association, who revealed in a study from Tufts University.

6. Carbohydrates helps break down fat. Breakfast with carbohydrates which nature does not raise blood sugar quickly, such as oatmeal or bran cereal, three hours before exercise, will help you burn more fat, according to a study from the Journal of Nutrition. Both types of these foods, like potatoes with skin, bread wheat, pasta wheat, or peas, do not cause blood sugar soaring as fast as when you eat white bread or white rice. In contrast, insulin levels do not rise quickly, and because the role of insulin signaling that the body store fat, make sure that lower insulin levels will help you burn fat.
