Phase out those bad carbs!
Diet during the pandemic is paramount. The more calorie rich carbohydrates we take in, the less stable is our source of long lasting energy. This will also leave you feeling hungry regularly. Moreover, the more we consume these quickly digested carbs, the more insulin our pancreas produces, which can eventually lead to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Therefore, it is important to avoid all forms of sweet, starchy or heavily refined products.
