So you thought you knew it all about carbohydrates? Maybe not.
In an article published here earlier today, I help you learn a lot more about carbohydrates than what most people know about them. I discuss what carbs are, if we need any and if do do then why, and if we don;t then why not. I also explain fiber, few of the many types of antinutrients in carbs. More importantly, I discuss the differences of macronutrients in terms of fuel versus nutrition and what that means to those wanting to eat right. I also discuss some of the things that are not in carbohydrates, such as omega 3 fatty acids in the form humans can metabolize, and the role of the much glucose we eat on insulin.
I hope it helps you see what carbohydrates really are as opposed what we think they are.
