Welcome to Carbohydrates -- What You Need to Know  
  Carbohydrates are organic compounds that consist of atoms of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. You'll find carbohydrates in many foods that contain plant or plant extracts. These include fruits, vegetables, grains and products such as sugar that are made from these ingredients.

Most nutrition experts suggest the use of complex carbohydrates as being most healthy. A simple usable definition of complex carbohydrates is that they consist of fruit, vegetables and whole-grains. These are good carbs.

Carbohydrates are a source of energy for the body. Unfortunately, most people consume too may carbohydrates, especially refined or simple carbohydrates in the form of sugar. And, as you probably know, carbohydrates are also a source of body fat. Refined carbohydrates are bad carbs.

Managing your intake of carbohydrates has become one of the most important aspects of maintaining health. Diets of various types attempt to temporarily eliminate, reduce, or regulate your intake of carbohydrates. Pills promise to reduce the absorption of carbohydrates in the digestive tract. And, exercise routines attempt to overcome the over consumption of carbohydrates.
