Types of carbohydrates

Carbohydrates provide energy and are classified into simple and complex types.

Simple carbs have one or two sugar molecules, providing quick energy but lacking nutrients and fiber.

Examples include sugar, candy, and soda.

Complex carbs have longer chains, releasing energy gradually.

Whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables are rich in complex carbs, vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

Opt for complex carbs for sustained energy, satiety, and stable blood sugar.

Excessive simple carbs can cause spikes and energy crashes.

Choose a balanced diet with complex carbs for optimal health and energy.
