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.
The carbohydrate-rich components of our nutrition are:
Cereal and pasta
- Buck-wheat porridge
- Wholewheat bread
Legumes and vegetables
- Broad beans
and sugars of all kinds
(e.g. especially in overripe fruits, bananas, honey etc.)
