Dr. Daryl’s FAVORITE Carbs

Yep, you read the title correctly. You DO need to eat carbs—fiber-rich, slow-burning carbs. 

Only 5% of Americans are getting the recommended 25-35 grams of daily fiber. No wonder why 42 MILLION Americans suffer from constipation and needlessly take dangerous laxatives. If you are part of the 42 million, please read my blog on 4 things you can do today to cancel constipation. 

Of course, mineral-rich greens are good sources of fiber. However, true Strength-Eating™ is about fueling with a variety of healing foods—including Dr. Daryl-approved carbs. My complex carbs are fiber-rich and slow-burning, which won’t spike your blood sugar or insulin. 

Why You NEED Carbs

There are countless reasons why, but here are the main ones:

  • Keeps you feeling full. Fiber slows down the emptying of your stomach, which keeps you feeling fuller longer. This is especially important if you are focused on sustainable weight loss and maintenance. 

  • Crush cravings and burn fat. It’s a basic human principle—when you feel full and happy, you don’t reach for processed and sugary snacks. 

  • Strengthens your gut. Fiber fuels the friendly flora in your gut. Since 80% of your immune system and 95% of your serotonin (happy hormone) live in your gut, keeping it strong is critical for overall health and happiness. Unwrap more details here.

  • Without further ado, below is the long-anticipated list of my favorite carbs. I suggest eating 2 servings a day (1 serving = ½ cup).

    Seeing squash, potatoes, chickpeas, pumpkin, and green beans on the list may have been a bit shocking. While they are known to be vegetables, they are actually fiber-rich carbs.

    I would also buy quinoa, lentils, wild rice, and chia seeds in bulk. It reduces costs and they last a while in your pantry. If your kitchen is properly stalked, you can’t make any excuses for not getting your 2 servings of Dr. Daryl-approved carbs in ;)
