Good carbs and bad carbs

good carbs and bad carbsCarbs are an essential part of our diet, they are very important and therefore, we have to distinguish between good and bad carbs. It seems that more and more people count carbs that accept and pay much attention to them.
Carbohydrates are divided into simple and complex. Complex cars are often called good carbs. Good carbs contain essential vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that are important to the health and condition of the body. Complex carbs are those that give fuel to the body. They are found mostly in foods rich in fiber. They provide stable levels of blood sugar and contain fiber, which decompose more slowly from the stomach and gives a feeling of satiety for longer.
Simple carbs are also called bad carbs. Simple cars are absorbed by the body more quickly, providing the blood sugar for a short time and make you feel hungry.To reduce the intake of bad carbs, it is better to reduce the intake of
refined foods. That is because in the process of refining a lot of healthy nutrients in carbohydrates are removed.
