Hi I'm not a expert but like the good carbs would be fruit and veggies. Bad would be process foods. In a box, bag, fast foods. Keep your foods simple. Hope it helps.

I think "good carbs" also usually includes things like whole grain: brown rice, kashi, etc.

Kinda, but bottom line is that unless its fiber, its gonna be stored as fat if its not burned off. I've worked with plenty of people that thought they would be fine just switching to lower glycemic index foods,but its not as dramatic as one would think. Its more aboutTimingShock

Unfortunately there are no such thing as GOOD carbs. If you want to lose weight, do it fast, and keep it off, eliminate asw many as you can. Try to stay under 50 grams per day or less. Do this for two or three weeks at a time with one week of moderate carb consumption, less than 100 grams per day.
I will admit it is a very tough diet to deal with,and it takes full dedication, but you will be rewarded.

Dietary CHO, if not oxidized, will generally end up as glycogen before de novo lipgoensis takes place.

See: De novo lipogenesis in humans: metabolic and regulatory aspects.

and

Dietary fat, lipogenesis and energy balance (pdf)

Quote:
The fate of ingested CHO (exogenous origin) is well known. After intestinal absorption, CHO are partly oxidized and partially stored as glycogen in the liver and the muscles for subsequent use in the postabsorptive period. If large amounts of CHO are ingested over a prolonged period of time, some CHO will be converted progressively to fat by de novo lipogenesis.

RND ROB you did it great but it is rarely applicable for everyone because of less motivation towards workouts we mostly try managing our weight through diet control so it is gonna be a harmful practice ...
