4. Foods rich in carbohydrates make you obese
If we are taking about carbohydrates, then what you need to pay attention to is the portion sizes of the foods that you eat. You can hardly become obese by consuming complex carbs. However, obesity will surely become your issue if you are addicted to simple carbohydrates. Opt for foods that contain fiber rather than pure sugar. Instead of candies eat fruit and eat oats and brown rice instead of white bread. Choose foods with a lower GI and you will be healthy.
