This is a very tricky area. Most people classify carbohydrates as either complex or simple/processed. Unfortunately for most patients suffering from imbalance problems almost any carbohydrate is a no-no. It is a physiological fact that the more carbohydrates you eat the more you will want. Carbohydrate is a symptom of an imbalance; use this craving to monitor your progress. Overall, eat vegetables as your carbohydrate choice and limit grains(even the whole grains can be trouble). When you do eat whole grains, only have in moderation and only at dinner. If you start the day with carbohydrates, you are more likely to crave them throughout the day, and then you'll eat more and it's downhill from there. Absolutely stay away from bread (100% rye only bread is the least of the evils), muffins, cookies, candies, crackers, pasta, white rice, and most baked goods.
There's another dark side to carbohydrates that aren't talked about the much-the connection to weight gain, elevated cholesterol and triglycerides, and cancer. You don't even need to know the details to get the idea of how much trouble carbohydrates are.
