Truth About Carbohydrates & Sugar

last year

Not All Carbs And Sugars Are Created Equal


Carbohydrate is the technical term for all sugars. are found in fruits, vegetables, beans, dairy products, foods made from grain products, and sweeteners such as sugar, honey, etc. Sugars are “simple” carbohydrates. They are closest to the completely broken down form that your body uses as fuel. In fact, glucose itself is the simplest sugar. You see, there are three forms of carbs. Sugars, starches, and dietary fiber.  Not all carbs are created equal, however. Naturally occurring sugars like fructose in fruit and lactose in dairy, sugars that are added to foods, and refined grains.

Hello, nice to meet you. I’m a computer geek and I’m into health and fitness, so I thought I’d make a site to combine the two and help others along the way. Outside of that, I like to be a dad, read fantasy and self-help books, watch action movies, and spend time with family and friends. Oh, and secretly plot to take over the world. Cuz, you know, who doesn’t? Enjoy:-)
