Carbohydrates have been made the unfair villain in recent years. It takes the blame for weight gain, Blood Pressure or blood sugar issues. Everyone around you instantly asks you to cut down on your carbs if you complain about health issues. But this is a complete misconception. What exactly are carbohydrates? Why are they good or bad for our health? Long story short, not all carbs are bad. Yes, you heard that right! Let’s see how.
Carbohydrates are one of the three macronutrients our bodies need to survive. They are made of dietary fibres, sugars and starches found naturally in plants and dairy products. They are one of the main sources of energy for your body and also additionally help in the strengthening of the immune system. Our bodies break them down into glucose, which directly gives us energy. So, they’re super important to keep you healthy and fit. You’ll be surprised to know that most fruits, vegetables and legumes you love are packed with carbohydrates- but the good kind! Your favourite HALO freeze dried fruit snacks are also packed with nutrition, including carbohydrates, needed for your body to stay healthy and thrive.
Here’s a simple thumb rule with carbohydrates: Complex is better.
Fruits, vegetables and leafy greens usually have complex good carbohydrates with multiple layers of fibre starch and bran, thereby slowing down the digestion process. Slower the digestion, the more stable the release of glucose. So, you won’t have sudden spikes in your blood sugar. Simple carbs, on the other hand, go straight to the blood, causing sudden spikes in your energy levels. But on the downside, it also falls as fast as it rises, leaving you feeling hungry sooner. This makes you overeat, leading to weight gain and a host of other health problems.
