Good Carbs vs Bad Carbs

There are simple carbohydrates (the bad stuff) and complex carbohydrates (the good stuff)

Simple carbohydrates are things like fructose and glucose which are found in white flour/starch (white bread, rice, sugar) and are “empty calories”. One thing to stay away from is high fructose corn syrup found in sodas and processed foods.

Complex carbohydrates are whole grains (oats, rye, quinoa, whole wheat bread and rice) beans, legumes, pasta, potatoes, fruits and vegetables.
