Question from NorthBeach: I don't understand carbs. I keep hearing that there are good carbs and bad carbs, like on the South Beach diet. How can I know what to eat?
Answers - Cyndi Thomson, Ph.D., R.D. By good carbs and bad carbs, generally the message is to choose high fiber/whole grain carbs, not low fiber/high sugar carbohydrates. Look at your food label to check the fiber and sugar content, and select foods that are higher in fiber and low or devoid of sugar.
