Most Underrated Carbs for Weight Loss

1. Whole Wheat Bread

Research has shown that, especially within a Mediterranean-style diet, eating whole wheat bread can help promote weight loss and even lower levels of belly fat.

2. Kimchi

Like all vegetables, kimchi contains fiber and micronutrients, but it stands out particularly for its content of probiotics.

3. Brown rice

Rice is a carbohydrate staple the world over. And, as it turns out, paying attention to the color of this universal grain can make a world a difference when it comes to weight loss.

4. Oats

Instead of sugary cereal or insulin-spiking pastry, reach for some good old-fashioned oats (or the quick-cooking kind)! All oats are whole grains.

5. Apples

Apples can seem a bit ho-hum next to flashier fruits like colorful berries—and if you're going low-carb, you may have nixed them from your diet altogether.

6. Barley

 One study found that people who ate barley-based bread had better appetite regulation and metabolic control after three days, compared to those who ate white bread.

7. Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are lower in calories and carbs—and higher in fiber—than their white potato counterparts. They're also surprisingly high in several micronutrients, including potassium.

8. Teff

if you want to keep carbs in your weight loss plan, maybe it's time to cozy up to this Ethiopian cereal grass. Just a quarter cup provides 7 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber
