What are Carbohydrates?
Carbohydrates are one of the three macronutrients (along with protein and fat) that are essential for a healthy diet. They provide the body with energy and are found in a variety of foods, including grains, fruits, vegetables, and dairy products. There are two main types of carbohydrates: simple carbohydrates (such as sugar) and complex carbohydrates (such as fiber). It is important to choose complex carbohydrates, as they are more slowly absorbed and provide a steady source of energy.
