High Carbohydrate Foods

High carbohydrate foods provide us with energy. Too much of them, however, will make you lose steam

The following is a list of high carbohydrate foods.

Carbohydrates are the crucial factor in a diet optimized for a healthy blood glucose level:

It just won't work without them, because we need the readily available energy that they provide - yet too much carbohydrate will unsettle your blood glucose balance.

A large intake of any carbohydrate source triggers an increased release of insulin, which causes a rapid drop in the blood glucose level.

This, in turn, signals to our body that we need more of them as replenishment.

The consequence is ravenous appetite.
