Carbohydrates are your primary source of energy. Consuming the right carbohydrates is needed for a high metabolic rate, increased CO2 levels, decreased oxidative damage, good brain function, muscle energy and recovery, and detoxing the liver.
Simple sugars like fructose, glucose, sucrose, and lactose are your best sources. These include: fruits, honey, milk, white sugar, fruit juices, and root vegetables.
Carbohydrates should never be eaten alone. Always combine carbohydrates with a fat and protein (e.g., fruit and cheese, eggs and OJ, and milk and honey).
Low-carb dieting, although effective for quick loss, long term will lead to fatigue, sugar cravings, sleep issues, hormone issues, muscle wasting, and weight gain.
When adding sugars back into your diet, start slowly. Even the right sugars, added in too quickly, will lead to weight gain, bloating, and hormonal issues.
