Carbohydrates And Nutrition - ebook that was designed to give you a full featured information about carbohydrates and nutrition
Carbohydrates are macronutrients - foods we need to eat in reasonably large quantities. The two other macronutrients are protein and fat. Carbs are easily converted to energy by the body, so they supply most of our energy needs.

There are basically two main types of carbohydrate: simple carbs and complex carbs - although this classification of carb-types has been superceded by the Glycemic Index (GI) and Glycemic Load (GL).

Simple carbs are sugars, like glucose, fructose and lactose. Common sources are table sugar (sucrose), boiled sweets, syrups and honey.

Complex carbs are either starches, or indigestible dietary fiber. Common sources of starches include rice, pasta, bread, beans and some vegetables.

Note: Carbs may be a very efficient source of energy, but this doesn't
make them more important than fats or protein. Indeed, both fat and protein
are absolutely vital for good health, and without a balanced diet of carbs, fat and protein, the human body quickly becomes malnourished.

Also, it's important to realize that nearly all foods (except for oils/fats) contain a mixture of carbs, protein and fat.

Carbohydrates And Nutrition application is a simple ebook that was designed to give you a full featured information about how to maintain a good health.
