During my week of everything carbohydrate, I would be amiss if I didn’t at least mention the debate between traditional diets and the current “low-carb” fad. The following article is from Daniel Kiikka, fellow blogger and health fanatic. According to his website, Daniel has a Master’s degree in physical education with a minor in health sciences. He currently works as a Sports Specialist, and teaches PE and health sciences in secondary and HS.
Daniel has put together a wonderful article comparing traditional diets with low-carb diets. It’s a well thought out, thoroughly researched article. I highly recommend it to anyone considering a low-carb diet.
I just want to add one thing here. Low carb doesn’t mean no carb. If you are considering or are currently on a low-carb diet remember: Your body NEEDS carbs. Stick to healthy, complex carbohydrate, whole-food sources.
Thanks to Daniel for putting this great article together. The infographic below is from Daniel’s article…Follow the link at the bottom of the page for the full article
