I won't try to convince you what to do about carbohydrate consumption. But if you are like most of us "weirdos" that watch what we eat, you probably have times when whether or not you can have some bread makes you crazy.
It's good to know there are bread products that don't have to be on your forbidden list. Such as the following.
Put the wraps on your fear-of-flour
LaTortilla Factory soft wraps are a great alternative to regulrr breads. These wraps are 50 calories, 4gm of fiber, 10gm carbs, and zero sugar, plus they come in five flavors:
- White Whole Wheat
- Honey Oat
- Three Seed
The brand is widely available throughout the US; Walmart Superstores for example. And I think they are great-tasting.
You can learn all about them on the LaTortilla Factory website.
For my part I rarely heat them or do anything other than put what I want inside of them, which is typically peanut butter, or roast beef, or McD sausage and egg burrito (I pitch the white wrapper used by McDonald's and substitute the LaTortilla Soft Wrap for the fiber and because it's, well ... McDonald's, which I always presume contains the cheapest ingredients.
I suggest that when you find a food you like, you should test your blood sugar response to make sure it's something you should allow into your body.
In my world blood sugar is the most important thing you can know if you want to get the maximum benefit from your training and nutrition. For some years I have been forcing clients to test blood sugar or I won't work with them.
End of sermon
Other than a wild blood sugar event I don't see any reason most of us can't eat carbs in moderation, which most of us probably are doing already. Here is the LaTortilla Factory link.
Fitness decisions should be based in facts rather than fads -- except maybe deciding to get fit so you can wear Hot Yoga Pants. That's a good reason.
