There are benefits to eating of food consisting of high carbohydrates, which includes these three separate categories: sugars, starches, and even fiber. Sugar carbs are found in lactose, fructose, and sucrose. Carbohydrates from starches are found in, potatoes, rice, legumes, and even peas. Fiber carbs are the associated with the following: vegetables, cooked beans, fruits, and even certain whole grain foods. All of carbohydrates are turned into glucose (which is sugar) inside your body.
Not all carbs are equal. Whole carbs (these are the good carbs) are found in nature. They are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and fiber. For example, a raw apple. Refined carbs are found in packages. For example, an apple fritter. These have very little value in providing your body good nutrition. You need to look for good whole carbohydrates that are found in nature.
Not all carbohydrates are considered the same, there is a healthy way to increase carbs. The scale of high and low carbs falls on the Glycemic Index (GI) scale. It ranges from 0 to 100 and measures how your blood sugar increases. The top 5 carbohydrate foods known as high quality are Potatoes, Yams, Beans, Quinoa, and even Bananas. Other fruits that are highly notable are apples, grapefruits, oranges, and even pears.
