Cut Back on Carbs at Night

Carbohydrates are
NOT as cute as they
appear in the
image to the right!

It's a scientific fact that your body cannot burn fat when your insulin levels are elevated. It's also a fact that carbs cause insulin levels to go up. So, it's especially important to limit your carb intake of foods like bread, pasta, candy, juices, crackers and bagels in the evening after 6:00 p.m. Carbs consumed in the evening are more likely to be converted to bodyfat and/or reduce the amount of fat your body may burn during sleep.
