The Skinny On Carbs!

July 31, 2013 1 min read

Here are a few differences between complex and simple carbohydrates to help you understand what each is and what it does after we eat them.

Complex Carbs Are Good!

Complex carbs are the ones that give your body the best fuel. They are usually found in foods high in fiber, so they break down more slowly, giving you a steady blood sugar level through the day and making you feel less hungry.
  • Fresh fruit
  • Non-starchy vegetables
  • Nuts and whole grains

Simple Carbs Are Not So Good!

Your body quickly breaks down simple carbs, giving your blood sugar a spike and sending you right back to the kitchen.
  • Refined grains like white bread, white rice and enriched pasta
  • Processed foods such as candy, cookies, and chips
  • Sweetened soft drinks
  • Sugar
Good carb foods tend to have higher fiber and lower calories than many processed bad carb foods. You'll find yourself feeling fuller while eating fewer calories.You definitely don't HAVE to skip that cookie as long as it's not an every day treat!
