What Do Carbs Do For My Body?

Our bodies are remarkably adept at adapting to our environment and to the foods we eat. In times of excess food consumption, the body stores energy in fat, to use in times when food is scarce. Today that is rarely the case -- food being scarce. We have a bigger problem with Carbs being too plentiful and cheap. Carbohydrates are an important component of our diet. Carbohydrates and fat provide energy and is needed along with protein.

As soon as we take a bite of our food, it is broken down for our body to use. Carbohydrates are broken down into glucose or sugars that can be easily converted to glucose and after a pit stop in the liver, it is circulated in the blood stream causing our blood sugar levels to rise. Every organ including the brain needs glucose. Our body can utilize only a limited amount of glucose and when that amount is exceeded by quantity of food we take in, our body stores it as fat. We consume more and more simple carbs in today's Standard American Diet (SAD) and waist lines are expanding along with chronic illnesses.
