Good Morning from Steviva Brands, Inc.,

In a healthy diet, most carbohydrate would come from nutrient-dense foods. Nutrient-dense foods and complex carbs like whole grains, legumes, vegetables, and yogurt contain a high volume of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein in proportion to their calorie content.

These micro-ingredients allow glucose to be processed correctly and present the development of deficiencies that generate "carb craving." They also tend to be lower on the glycemic index.

Low-nutrient foods like candy and regular sodas contain carbohydrate, but lack the other nutrients your cells require for health. Because they contain simple sugar or refined grains, they are high on the glycemic index and are more likely to cause the blood sugar to spike. They may be eaten in small amounts but nutrient-dense foods like brown rice and broccoli are better for both your health and your blood sugars.

Water is paramount to your weight loss equation. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder. Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder.
