If there’s one macronutrient I feel sorry for it’s carbs. Seriously! These poor little things get such a bad rep when in reality they’re a vital nutrient in any wholesome diet.
Carbohydrates, more commonly known as “carbs,” are a primary source of fuel for our brain and blood cells. Additionally, they act as an energy source for our muscles during physical activity. Unfortunately, they tend to be the first thing to get cut from a dieter’s “meal plan.” Fun fact: Carbs will not make you fat however, the type of carbs you choose to consume could be making you fat.
