Introduction, Good vs Bad Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates, the strongest pillar of nutrition provide 4 calories of energy per gram and constitute 45-65% of our daily calorie intake. Carbohydrates are broken down to glucose, which is the primary energy source for our cells, muscles and brain. They ensure smooth functioning of the digestive tract and help with sound sleep. They are a component of most plant-based foods - cereals, pulses, fruits, vegetables and nuts. Dairy products are the only animal source of carbohydrates.
