Scientists have refuted one of the most popular myths about weight loss

Scientists from the University of Arizona (USA) have ruled out a link between the use of fast carbohydrates and a set of extra pounds. The study is published in the journal Advances in Nutrition.

According to the authors of the work, foods with a high glycemic index (fast carbohydrates) do not affect a person’s weight. Fast carbohydrates include, for example, dates, white bread and rice, honey, potatoes, low-red beans, vegetables, and wild rice.

Experts analyzed statistical data and compared the body mass index of almost two million people. It turned out that people who eat substances with a high glycemic index are not prone to fullness, and with the right ratio, fast carbohydrates help maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of various diseases.

The researchers recommended following a balanced diet with a wide diet of carbohydrates, especially whole grains. “Eating a wide range of carbohydrates from white bread with fast carbohydrates to cereals, their reasonable combination is good for health,” they noted.
