In today's health matters, what's better to cut down on when you're trying to lose weight? Carbs or fat?
It's a long standing debate among dietitians, but more and more research says too many empty carbs are actually the problem.
In a recent study, overweight men and overweight women went on diets for two consecutive eight week periods. One group focused on cutting carbs while the other cut fat.
Both groups lost weight, but the group on the reduced carb diet actually lost 11 percent more bad belly fat than the low-fat group.
And they lost more fat overall.
You don't have to cut all carbs from your diet, just make sure the ones you eat are good quality, like whole grains, vegetables, fruits and beans.
