What are carbohydrates?

Carbohydrates are one of the main macronutrients for the body along with proteins and fats. They provide the body with glucose, which is converted into energy. And energy is needed to carry out the basic metabolic processes in the body and physical activity.

But the most important type of carbohydrate you choose to consume is because some sources are healthier than others. The amount of carbohydrates in the diet – large or small, is less important than their type. For example, healthy whole grain foods such as whole grain bread, rye, barley, and quinoa are better choices than refined white bread or French fries.

Many people are confused about carbohydrates, but keep in mind that according to the Harvard School of Public Health, it is more important to eat carbohydrates from healthy foods than to follow a strict diet that limits or monitors the number of grams of carbohydrates consumed.
