Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates reputation is worse than it deserves, especially in a weight gain perspective.
Many diets preaches that carbs should be avoided if you wish to lose weight but this is just wrong as there is both bad and healthy carbs, and it’s the best way for you body to obtain energy.
Your body breaks down carbohydrates into glucose, or blood sugar which is the main source of energy for our bodies which is vital for a healthy body and mind.

Carbs is one of the three macronutrients that we need to survive, the other two being fats and proteins.
The amount of carbs in your diet isn’t as important as the type of carb, for example whole grains such as rye, quinoa, and wheat bread are better than white bread and French fries.

Healthy carbs appear naturally in plant based foods, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains and seeds.

The unhealthier carbs are those that are highly processed or refined, these are easily congested which leads to spiky insulin levels and may contribute to weight gain and heart disease.
Food manufacturers adds carbs to most processed foods in the form of sugar or starch.
