Why Do We Need Carbohydrates?

By Mark Thomson

So, you wonder why do we need carbohydrates? You should know that our nutrition must be based on consuming all types of nutrients, no matter if we are talking about carbohydrates, proteins or fats. But we must eat them in specific quantities, and we mustn't abuse of anyone of them because all supply our body with 100% of its energy.

Carbohydrates, proteins mean calories and calories means weight. 1 gram of carbohydrates or proteins have 4 calories and 1 gram of fat has 9 calories, that's why we mustn't use too much fat. Each nutrient has its own purpose and as I said already, we must eat them all for growing, while we maintain our daily activities.

A very important myth is that carbohydrates will make you fat, but you should already seen that fats make us fat because 1 gram of fat has 9 calories.

But why do we need carbohydrates? Because carbs are the main source of energy for our bodies and all the dietitians must tell people that we should consume more carbs than fats or proteins, and that is why most sports people eat meals with high carbohydrates.

So, don't look anymore for diets that tell you that carbohydrates are the main source of obesity and that's why you shouldn't eat them anymore. These diets are usually not very real because they lie from the start, and carbs aren't the main source for obesity.

Where can we find carbohydrates? The carbs are very concentrated in bread, pasta, rice and cereals in general, potatoes, porridge, oatmeal, cornflour.
