Sugar and starch. Sugar and flour. Potato. But colored starches are not special carbs! All carbs are highly glycemic unless they have a good amount of fiber-beans, lentlis, etc. Avoid starch and sugars, whenever possible.

Dr. Marvin Den answered:

What are healthy carbs?

Non processed

Carbs
The best carbs are those that are not too processed. Anything instant or made with "white" flour has already been broken down and you are getting "sugar" . Avoid high fructose corn syrup as well. Whole grain or wheat or carbs that need to be cooked alot are the best. Remember though, amounts ingested count as well.

how about low-carb diets?

Low-carb diets

Diet
Low carb diets can clearly help you lose weight. Carbohydrates are broken down into simple sugars. They then enter your cells with help from insulin and this gives you energy. Thus, you cannot decrease carbs too much. Although you can lose on a low carb diet, any diet that decreases calories can help you lose weight. Increasing your activity level is the most important factor to sustain it.

Dr. John Garner answered:

Can the low carb diet work?

Sure, but...

Those no carb diets all work by the same mechanism every diet on earth works by: less calories in. The key is that if you eat enough calories to gain weight but do it from fats and protein alone, it'll make you sick, so most people end up eating substantially less. Try it and see (MyFitnessPal is a great app for this). Every 3500 cal missed (or so), another pound will fall off.

Dr. David Sneid answered:

Is a low carb diet healthy ?

Within limits

Carbs
You only have carbohydrate, protein and fat to deal with. It's not like Baskin Robbins where you have 32 flavors to choose from. Eat a BALANCED diet and exercise. Don't overly restrict any of the three, because excessive amounts of any of the others can lead to problems.
