Health Tip: Choose Healthy Carbohydrates

Look for whole grains and those high in fiber

(HealthDay News) -- The foods you eat contribute to your overall mood and appetite, the Cleveland Clinic advises.

If you feel good and feel satisfied that you've eaten enough, you may not feel the desire to go back for more, clinic experts say.

Carbohydrates -- an essential part of your diet -- should be whole grain and contain lots of fiber. Here are some of the clinic's choices:

  • Whole-grain cereals and breads.
  • Potatoes with their skins.
  • Brown rice, bulgur and quinoa.
  • Fresh vegetables and fruits.
  • Whole-grain pasta.
