No single nutrient causes more confusion than carbohydrates. Often you’ll hear partial truths about how carbs make you look, feel or affect your health. Statements like: “Carbs make you fat”… “carbs make you sluggish”… “carbs cause disease.”
Carbohydrates are one of Nature’s amazing gifts, created from the energy of the sun and the carbon dioxide in the air, providing us with not only a source of fuel for our bodies but also oxygen for us to breathe!
Fiber is easily one of the most misunderstood, overlooked, and underrated nutrients in our diets. Technically, it’s not considered a nutrient, since our bodies can’t directly break fiber down into energy. But don’t let that fool you.
