The truth of the matter is this; many folks just want to do or take something once a day that doesn't take any effort or thinking or researching to make the fat go away and that's just not gonna work,...ever.
This kind of discussion is what everyone needs to participate in if they're serious about losing weight, not going on "fad" diets or fancy "As Seen on TV" gizmo to get into shape but these somewhat long and arduous conversations that require thinking and effort.

Simple carbohydrates are found in foods such as sugar, white bread, honey and refined foods. They are considered "fast" carbs because your body breaks them down quickly to give you a fast burst of energy. Complex carbohydrates are commonly found in nutritious foods such as whole grains, vegetables, beans and fruits. They are called "slow" carbs because your body digests them at a slower pace for a steadier stream of energy
Eat more "slow"-carb plant-based foods such as vegetables and whole grain products to reduce your risk of gaining weight and developing health complications. Save items such as candy, soda, cake and white rice for special occasions. If your meal includes a "fast" carb such as a white potato or white rice, start your meal with a light soup or a salad to help yourself feel full faster.

I keep hearing about eating fast carbs, slow carbs and protein together to burn fat. Has anyone tried this? Any info on what is a fast or slow carb? I am curious about this.
