There are many forms of carbohydrates, but the three common forms are sugars, starches, and fibres. The energy in body generated by carbohydrates, maintaining low-carb diet can achieve good health benefits.
Two types of carbohydrates
Simple carbohydrates sugars composed of monosaccharide and disaccharides as glucose, sucrose, lactose, and fructose. This category of carbohydrates best found in fresh fruits.
Avoid simple carbohydrates, such as cakes, cookies, products made with white flour and processed foods, which are generally low in fiber and often high in fat and added sugar.
Getting enough fiber-rich carbohydrates can help prevent digestive problems, such as constipation and indigestion
When eating less than 50 grams per day, your body will get into ketosis, supplying energy for the brain via so-called ketone bodies. This is likely to kill your appetite and cause you to lose weight automatically.
Choose carbohydrate sources that include fiber. Try to choose unrefined starch sources like potatoes, sweet potatoes, oats and brown rice.
