A Carb is a Carb is a Carb… RIGHT!?
The war on carbohydrates has been raging for about 10 – 20 years now (depending on which side of the diet adoption curve you sit), and after vilifying fat, grains, dairy, meat, cooking, and certain proteins… I’m not looking forward to eating what’s left (well, at least not every day). It’s about time we sat back and had a look where this war on carb’s started, and approach this from a (hopefully) more objective vantage. In part 1, we’re going to look at what carbohydrates actually are, before getting into how we use them in part 2!
…Carb’s essentially mean glucose (end product). Glucose means fuel for your body. Where did we go wrong…???
