When you are looking to be lean and healthy most would tell you that you need to have more protein in your diet. For a long time it has been believed that protein is good and that carbohydrates are bad. Everyone has been telling you that you need to cut back on the carbohydrates that you consume and crank up the protein. Now, new research suggests that those original thoughts might not be so right after all.
A study done on mice shows that healthy carbs may be more important to a body than protein. NexPointAdvisors even says this research suggests that the consumption of healthy carbs could be good for a body, and that you might need more carbs than you do protein. It seems that carbs may be good for a person when they are the right kind, and one might not really need as much protein as was originally thought.
