Processed carbohydrates tempt people to overeat

Zeenews has the article Processed carbohydrates tempt people to overeat.

Washington: A new study has found that eating highly- processed carbohydrates like cakes, cookies and chips could affect pleasure centers in the brain, leading to serious cravings that might cause people to overeat.
High-glycemic carbohydrates get digested rapidly, and include white bread, pasta, rice and baked goods, WebMD notes. Low-glycemic carbs are digested much slower, and include fruits, vegetables, unprocessed whole grains and legumes.

This might help to explain what foods to avoid and what foods are OK if you want to keep your weight and your blood sugar under control.
