2:09 Good carbs on keto to focus on

In this video, we’re going to talk about the carbs that are worse than sugar. I was recently talking to someone who was eating popcorn. They thought that it was fine to consume because it’s only carbohydrate and not sugar. But is it really fine? 
The glycemic index is a scale of how fast a carbohydrate breaks down, gets absorbed, and raises blood glucose. If it’s in excess, it will turn into fat, cholesterol, or triglycerides. The greater the index, the worse the food, and the more damage it could create. 

Refined grain doesn’t have fiber. Fiber is a carbohydrate that has the potential to buffer or slow down the effect on blood sugars. Just because certain foods are carbohydrates and not sugars, doesn’t mean they’re healthier. 

Good carbs on keto to focus on:
• Vegetable carbohydrates 
The fiber in vegetable carbohydrates will feed the colon bacteria, which will help fuel the body. It’s loaded in fiber, low in sugar, high in nutrients, and it can actually help regulate blood sugars.
