Carbohydrates tend get a bad reputation for providing little nutritional benefits as we avoid them like the plague, feeling guilty about indulging in their bready goodness. Well, some carbohydrates might be devoid of any nutrients, but complex ones like those in wholegrain breads are one of the body’s essential sources of energy. In fact, eliminating it completely may not only affect our brain’s memory-based task performance, but even takes its toll on metabolic processes like breathing and digesting.
Consuming something at a large amount (including protein and fat) or eating more calories than you burn in a day would certainly cause an increase in body weight. We should therefore eat healthy carbs as part of a balanced diet so that our body would function the way it should.
Breads can actually offer you a genuine health streak if you pick the right loaf containing complex carbohydrates which takes longer for our body to break them down. Sugar is then infused at a steadier pace into our bloodstream, suppling longer lasting energy. We wouldn’t recommend ditching all carbs from your daily meals but focus on eating the good kinds in moderation instead.
