Why Do People Eat Low Carb? Why Oh Why?
Today, I'm going to give you the absolute best carb sources you can choose for building muscle and burning fat. Carbs get a bad reputation now a days and they really shouldn't.
Did you know carbohydrates are THE preferred source of fuel by the body? Surely we've all learned that at one point in our lives. But the entire world has seem to forgotten this…
Why have we given carbohydrates a bad name?
You got me. You really do. It's absolutely mind boggling to me.
Why would we give the body's preferred source of fuel a bad name? The body needs premium fuel to function properly. Yet, we continue to deny our body what it needs. Why?
Because we've been eating horrible sources of carbohydrates mixed with very bad fats and people blame it on the carbs. Ha, ha. Now that is funny.
French fries, potato chips, white bread, enriched bread, candy, cake, ice cream, blah, blah, blah. All of those foods and thousands more are absolutely horrible for you and your body.
But hey — Let's just blame it on the carbohydrates. Eat crap and blame it on the carbs. You see why I think it's funny? We're putting blame on something that doesn't deserve it.
That's why I want you to have a good list of carbohydrate foods.
Eating Bad Foods and Blaming it on the Carbs
Bad sources of carbs make you fat and hurt your health. They also lead to very low energy levels, laziness, headaches, and more.
If you want to get fat very fast…
Just eat really bad sources of carbs mixed with bad sources of fat. Yeah. Go ahead and eat fast food every day. Because that's exactly what you get from every fast food restaurant and most sit-down restaurants.
Go down the cookie and chips aisle at the grocery store and buy anything there. That will make you fat too.
But you don't want to be fat, right?
Well, I can tell you right now that it's not the carbs making you fat. It's you making bad choices.
You're here at Weight Lifting Complete probably because you want to build muscle, build strength, and get a lean and muscular body. Am I right?

Carbohydrates are very, very important for building muscle and burning fat. I absolutely dare you to try to make progress for long periods of time without good sources of carbs in your diet. It won't happen! I'll tell you that right now.
Carbs give you the energy you need to push yourself in the gym.
Without your primary source of fuel, it's going to be tough to make progress. I compare it to a car running on water versus premium gasoline. I'm going to give you a list of premium fuel for your muscle building and fat burning efforts.
My Top 10 List of Carbohydrate Foods
I'm listing my top 10 list of carbohydrate foods for building muscle and burning fat. I'm not including pre and post workout carbs that are also very important. Here is the list of carbohydrate foods…
It's very easy to buy some old fashioned oats, grind them up in a coffee grinder, and add them to a protein shake. Or you can cook the oatmeal, add a little natural peanut butter, and they taste great!
2. Yams/Sweet Potatoes
Poke a few holes in these with a fork, stick it in the microwave for a few minutes, cut it open, and you have a great carb source ready to eat.
3. Brown Rice
Brown rice takes a little more preparation time. Have you seen or heard of rice cookers? They make it easy for you. Just stick some brown rice in there, the cooker does all the work, turns off when it's finished, and even keeps it warm for you.
This is one of my favorites. Cut up some raw broccoli, add other veggies, and put them in a big freezer lock bag. Take the bag with you and munch on these with every meal.
I take raw spinach and add it to salad greens to make the salad even more nutritious. Throw in some spinach in your breakfast omelette too. Tastes great!
Simply cut these up and add them to your veggie bag for the day. Green peppers, red peppers, yellow peppers, or any color you can find. These taste great raw.
Beans mixed in your chili with tomatoes and lean beef is a great meal. You can mix black beans in your brown rice. Beans go good with lots of different foods and give you added protein.
Grapefruit is one of my favorite fruits. High fiber content too! But they do get a little messy and are pretty hard to eat at your desk at work. Things get a little sticky.
Any type of berry is an awesome carbohydrate source. Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and other berries can be found in the freezer section. Make you a protein shake in the belnder, throw in some mixed berries, and have a muscle building shake.
I personally have an apple every day. And it's not to just keep the doctor away. Whatever you do… Don't peel the apple and discard the peeling — that's the best part of the apple.
STOP! STOP! STOP! Low Carb All The Time Does NOT Work
If you stick to the carb sources I've mentioned above, there's absolutely no reason to eat low carbohydrate any more.
Low carb all the time puts you in a very bad position to build muscle and burn fat.
If you want to eat low carb to burn fat at faster rates, only do it for 3 to 4 days at a time — at most. The refuel your body with the list of carbohydrate foods I've given you above.
Don't refuel with sugary crap or horrible sources of carbohydrates. Give your body the best sources of carbs and your body will love you.
Start changing the way you eat. Stick to natural carbohydrate sources for the next 7 days, and see if you don't start to see much better results. You'll even feel better, have higher energy levels, and get stronger much faster.
After the next 7 days, you'll want to continue to eat better because you'll see the difference good carb sources can make in your life.
If you're going to workout hard each week, don't you want to see results? You don't want to waste your time.
Feed your body premium fuel, and your body will reward you. That, I can guarantee.
I can also guarantee that the WLC System will give you the body YOU WANT. Check it out if you're looking for a COMPLETE exercise and diet program that builds muscle and burns fat quickly and permanently.
