Carbohydrates are one of the most essential macro-nutrients that are required by our bodies in order to function optimally. Carbohydrates are present in food such as grains, breads, pasta, starchy foods in general, fruits, vegetables, junk food etc. They are an essential part of a well-rounded diet.

Carbohydrates main purpose is to provide the body with the appropriate fuel that it needs for proper organ functioning. Carbs are also needed in order for individuals to actively engage in any form of physical activity. The best and most healthy sources of carbohydrates are whole-grains, milk, fruits, vegetables, lentils, beans etc. as they provide us with the most vital of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that are required by our bodies in order to function correctly.

Carbohydrates are made up of a single sugar molecule and are presently divided into two categories namely simple carbs and complex carbs. Simple carbs are foods that are made up of simple sugars solely such as fruits, candy, soft drinks etc. Complex carbohydrates are comprised of starchy foods such as potatoes, oats, bread, rice etc.
