Carbs are bad for you. Sugar makes you fat. The check is in the mail. No, honey, I don’t know who ate the last cookie.

While they might seem like the truth to the uninitiated, should you dig a little deeper, you might just find out that you’ve been being lied to all along.
Damn you CSI!
So, why do carbohydrates get such a bad rap?
Well in this beautiful country we call home, there is a secret expectation that is often unspoken but universally known:
Don’t take responsibility when you can point the finger elsewhere.
Nobody wants to hear this.
It has to be more complicated and sinister, right? No. Not only is the cause of our country’s epidemic of obesity really this simple, but...
The problem here is that nobody wants to take full responsibility for their actions (or in the case of exercise, inaction).
I am not trying to be a “Debbie Downer” here folks, I just wanted to offer up an alibi for our friend,
The little story about Goldilocks and the 3 bears was one of my favorites when I was a child.
The lesson I took from that story was that moderation was very important in life.
(Except of course with bacon, cause you can never have too much of that.)
No, carbohydrates are not out committing crimes on the weekend, so maybe, just maybe, we can stop blaming them for all that ails us.
Try a little moderation in your life and you just might be able to enjoy a little bit of everything that life has to offer!
