Carbohydrates are generally avoided in weight loss diets, but does this have to be the case?

The reality is carbs need a "purpose", they need "somewhere to go" Carbohydrates can be used for

1. Immediate fuel

2. Short-term storage (glycogen)

3. Long term storage

If you are an active person then carbs (within reason) have "somewhere to go", they have a purpose.

If you are active you are also using up your short-term storage of carbs which is the glycogen stored in your muscles and liver (a tad in the brain as well).

Glycogen is the storage form of carbohydrates and is ready to be used in the short term, but if we are not active the short-term storage sites get full really quickly and there is no room for any more carbs to be stored there. 

This then means that carbs have to go into "LONG TERM" storage - aka FAT

So whether you can eat carbs (and how many you can eat) really depends on how active you are.

The really key is to time them correctly If eating very low carb is not for you , then you just have to give those carbohydrates "somewhere to go"
