Can carbohydrates make you fat?
by Jenn Durfey
If you are looking for a way to getenergy, carbohydrates are the way to do it. This is because they are converted easily into glucose, which is the type of sugar that is transported and used by your body. However, a diet high in carbs can mess with your bodyís blood sugar, which can create ups and downs in your energy levels and your mood. The best solution is to balance your carb intake with protein, fat, andfiber.
Research shows that we should get about half of our energy needs fromcarbohydrates. But can they make you fat? Well, thatís a little more uncertain. Eating too much of anything will make you fat. However, it has been shown that carbohydratescontain less calories than protein, alcohol, or fat. In order to not allow yourself to get fat, all you have to do is keep your diet balanced and healthy. A good rule of thumb is to have about twice as many carbs on your plate as protein.
Eating a complex carb such as beans, potatoes, rice, or pizza for each meal, along with a vegetable and fruit will guarantee that you will get the proper amounts of carbs and nutrients in your body. Keep a good balanced diet, get the right amount and types of carbohydrates in your body, and make sure that you are living a well-balanced and healthy life.
Show hospitality to strangers for, by doing that, some have entertained angels unawares.
Never stop helping others because others think that they abuse you. That stranger can be Jesus and you lose the opportunity to serve, even in something simple.
