      Hey Lisa! For oatmeal to truly be a complex carb it should only have the word “whole grain rolled oats” on the nutrition label. The pre-packaged sweeter tasting oatmeals have added sugar and preservatives. Bananas are a simple carb. Even though they contain vitamins and minerals, the sugar isn’t ideal for weight loss. It’s best to shift all fruit before noon, to give your body the best chance to burn the sugar. Hope that helps!! Please let me know if you have any more questions. xxoo CC

    I have a question. What kind of fruit should I eat to help me loose weight? Cause I think all fruits have carbs and sugars in it. I’m so confused.
