Of course you should eat carbs every day. Why wouldn't you? I get about 50% of my calories from carbs and 25% each of fat and protein. I try to keep my diet balanced with every meal, some carbs, some fats, some protein, every time I eat.

Restriction causes me not only to fall off the wagon, but to kick the wheels, run away, shoot said wagon and cry. Very bad.

This. About half of my calories are carbs.

carbs are your friend… complex carbs that is, not that processed white crap, but nice whole grains and stuff of that nature

Yes! I think our bodies need some of all the food groups to thrive long-term. I am doing South Beach diet (which I intend to make a lifestyle). At this point, I usually have 1-2 fruits a day and 2-3 grains. That has been working for me. Now, if I want more than i can choose to have it...I have not limited myself to this amount, that's kinda what I have been satisfied with so far.

Yes it's okay. I eat carbs every meal most days. I would NEVER stick to this if I cut out carbs.

eat smart carbs

Umm....I sure hope so. I'm a self proclaimed carbaholic right here. I don't think I could get through the day without carbs at pretty much every meal!

I eat carbs all day too just in the lowest form possible like nuts, seeds, berries, mellons & almond milk to name a few.

I eat 5 meals a day, including a healthy carb (fruit, whole grain, beans, etc.) with every meal. I've lost 23 lbs in the past 3 months. Of course, I'm also exercising and drinking lots of water, but my point is that you can eat carbs and still lose weight.

Yes, if you're careful about the amount and type. Leafy green and other non-starchy veggies are fine--you're not going to overeat on those--and a serving or two of low-sugar fruit such as berries or cherries. Grains (including corn) and sweets are what you want to avoid for now.

It's essential to eat protein and fat. The body requires these. It's actually not essential to eat carbohydrate. For most people, though, there's no need to cut out all carbs. Just choose wisely.

Lol...totally agree. You should lose weight eating the way you're going to eat forever...just less of it.

Ditto. Carb-free only brings pain and bingeing. And probably some funky gas.

Your body needs carbs. I think its your kidneys or your liver that needs them for daily function. Anyway I try to eat my carbs before 3pm.
