      Many people are going on diets to lose weight to get a beach body for the summer, but even dieters have to eat. Carbohydrates are particularly important, since they are essential for cells to remain active. Consuming too few leads to low blood sugar levels, sleeplessness, nervousness as well as arrhythmia and weak bones.

      As a result, it is important to consume at least 100 g of carbohydrates a day. Then how to lose weight?

      One consideration is what carbohydrates to eat. Brown rice, barley or rye are better than white rice or wheat. They contain more fiber and a smaller amount makes you feel full. They also prevent your body from absorbing glucose too quickly.

      Also, it's a good idea simply to eat less. By eating smaller portions of brown rice during each meal, you can lower your daily calorie intake by 500 to 800 kcal, which could lead to a 2 kg weight loss in a month.

      Also try whole wheat bread and cereal for breakfast instead of white rice. And stick to vegetables, fish, and lean meats rich in fiber and protein during dinner and maintain a caloric ratio of 3:2:1 for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
