Carbs get a bad rap. But newsflash, peeps - we need carbs to fuel our muscles and even our brains.
Like most things in life, carbs can be good and bad. Here’s our Hussle hints on which carbs to curb.
The problem with cereal is it hides a whole heap of sugar. And added sugar is something we don’t need in our lives. Stick to wholegrains, porridge and toast for breakfast.
2. Rice Cakes
Beware the rice cake – the dieter’s distraction. The problem with rice cakes is they don’t fill you up. So rather than one, it’s easy to scoff a whole packet.
Switch to whole-grain toast, which includes fibre and will fill you up!
A bagel brunch is a real treat, but boy are they off the carb-o-meter scale!
Rather than a bagel (worth four pieces of bread), switch it to a muffin and top with avo, peanut butter or egg. Nom.
Yes, it should be obvious. But you’d be surprised. Crisps DO NOT count as healthy carbs. Salt, sugar, flavouring. Not good. Try vegetable crisps instead, if you need that crispy hit.
5. Refined carbs
Refined carbs – white rice, white pasta, white bread. All have undergone processes which takes out a load of fibre. Swap all the above for brown versions, and you’ll have the perfect carb combo.

Are vegtable crisps really that much better than standard crisps? Once they've been baked at high temperatures and squashed to bits I doubt there's much left nutrition left in them.
I feel the same about ricecakes - not a problem for me to avoid them, they are just puffed air which I can't see the attraction of anyway
that's good re rice cakes, where I would PREFER to eat the packet! No problem avoiding those! I think there are some good cereals but it takes some seriousl label reading to avoid a coating of sugar.
