Cutting carbs and sugar to lose weight? If you are starting a low carb diet, it’s crucial to know the difference between good and bad carbohydrates. You need to know how to do a low-carb diet right to lose weight. Not all carbs are created equally.

Cutting carbs and sugar is not the same thing.

Some carbohydrates will cause a higher blood sugar and insulin response than others. If you are looking to lose weight after 50, or if you’ve been struggling with weight loss after menopause, it’s vitally important that you understand not all carbs will make you gain weight, and some even help you lose weight and prevent disease.

This video will help you learn about the three main types of carbohydrates - starches, sugars, and fiber. You will learn how each is metabolized differently to either contribute, or protect against insulin resistance, weight gain, and disease progression. By the end of this video you will have crystal clarity about the worst type of carb for your health.
