Carbohydrates form an important part of our diet. If you ever hear the term 'carbs are bad' for health or weight loss it's completely incorrect.
Fruit and vegetables provide important nutrients which we can only get from plants. They also provide us with fibre which we also get from whole grain pasta, bread, and oats. Fibre helps us with managing our weight and also aids our digestive health.
Aside from tasting great and offering fantastic nutrients for health, carbohydrates provide us with energy. This is especially important if you train in a gym.
Let's take a look at how much carbohydrate we should be consuming.
Sources Of Carbohydrate.
You'll quickly understand that we eat meals, not single nutrients like only protein, only carbs, only fat.
I mean, it is possible. You may eat a slice of turkey and this is mostly protein with a tiny amount of fat and no carbohydrate. If you make it a turkey sandwich then it turns into a combination of protein/carbs/fat.
This is how we mostly eat - meals with some combination of protein/carbs/fat. You'll start to understand this more and more, and you'll be able to make great decisions with your food.
Below are some rich sources of carbohydrate. Don't fear carbs!
