I have some exciting news to share with you today!  I am taking my passion for health and helping others to the next level.  In June I will be coming out with a weekly video podcast in addition to the weekly audio podcast. The video promo will be coming out this Sunday, so look for it and enjoy.  I am very excited to bring Being Healthy TV to you this year!

This is going to be a great year for Being Healthy TV, so make sure to partake of the new video goodness.  I promise you won’t regret it!  Now on to the show!

When many of us think about losing weight, we automatically think that we need to shun carbohydrates in favor of high protein foods because we heard that sugar is fattening.  But do carbohydrates actually make you fat?

Since carbohydrates have so often been debated when it comes to health, I thought it would be helpful to clear a few things up today.  In this show, I am going to discuss exactly what a carbohydrate is, what types of carbohydrates are best and whether carbohydrates will make you fat.

As promised, here is show 26 for those that are interested in listening to my journey to being healthier.

Some references I used while researching this show are The New Wellness Encyclopedia, Mayo Clinic and about.com.

The blog posts for this week are:

1. Oatmeal: The Breakfast of Champions!
2. Granola Bar: Healthy Treat or Sugary Sweet?

If you like the show, please head on over to iTunes and give me a nice review.  It’s a great way to give me some good exposure and can help me get more listeners.  Thanks for listening, everyone!
