Are Carbohydrates Necessary

This has been a long standing debate about consuming carbohydrates. Like everything else, I believe in moderation all the way around. But for some people they might need more or less carbs depending on their body type, health issues or general beliefs. No matter where you stand on the subject I think this is a pretty good article which gives the key functions of ingesting carbohydrates.

 

“Biologically speaking, carbohydrates are molecules that contain carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms in specific ratios.

But in the nutrition world, they’re one of the most controversial topics.

Some believe eating fewer carbohydrates is the way to optimal health, while others prefer higher-carb diets. Still, others insist moderation is the way to go.

No matter where you fall in this debate, it’s hard to deny that carbohydrates play an important role in the human body. This article highlights their key functions.”
