Hidden Carbohydrates

Vegetables: As a rough rule of thumb, vegetables that are grown below the soil level tend to be very high in carbohydrates and not in nutrients. Try and stick to vegetables such as broccoli, kale, spinach, asparagus etc as they have higher micro-nutrient content and less carbohydrates.
Fruits: try avoiding bright fruits such as bananas, oranges, strawberries etc. These fruits tend to be really high in a type of sugar called ‘fructose’, this sugar converts straight to fat in the liver.
Darker fruits tend to me lower in fructose and higher in anti-oxidants. Berries are the best fruit option.
Drinks: fruit drinks, energy drinks and drinks with lots of milk in are ones to avoid which often have lots of sugar in.
As a rough rule, you need to be aiming for 100g of net carbohydrates or less each day to achieve fat-loss.
