Yes that is true, eating too many carbs makes you gain weight, but only if your body does not burn more than it receives. That is the simple fact of weight loss; to lose weight your body must burn more calories than it receives from the food you eat. If you eat food that supplies your body with more calories than it burns then you will gain weight.
Not quite so straight forward
It is a little more complicated than that. The food which you eat must be healthy food if you hope to maintain your body in good shape. You could lose weight by eating only junk food in small quantities, but your body would figuratively give up in despair, with its digestive system in turmoil and you would be prone to various health problems. Studies have shown that people, who have a diet containing a large proportion of junk food, suffer more severe health problems than those who follow a healthy diet.
It is difficult to persuade many people to change unhealthy eating habits, even when they can be shown clear evidence that those habits are harmful to their health. There has been debate in the United States recently about the concept of taxing individual purchases to compensate for the so-called “social costs” of these items on peoples health. There have also been a series of articles suggesting taxes on junk food. Such measures may have doubtful value, it is much better if people make those decisions based on good judgment.
So the question of whether to control the amount of carbohydrates which someone consumes comes down to individual choice. One surely doesn’t have to read much literature on the subject of over weight and obesity to realise too many carbs make you gain weight and to understand the benefits to be gained by achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. Advice on healthy eating is readily and freely available. There are many sites on the internet which offer free suggestions for healthy foods and menus for meals which will help you to lose weight. If that becomes too confusing then there are sound balanced diets available at modest cost. Your health is a valuable asset; it is worthwhile investing a small sum of money on it.
