Let’s Talk Carbs, Sugars & Calories

 

Very often we focus too heavily on numbers associated with carbs, sugars and calories. We think that because something is high in carbs, calories or sugars that it’s immediately not good or healthy for us. This is a big misconception. It’s important to know and understand where your sugars, calories & carbs are coming from. If they are coming from the right places, then they’re good. 

carbs

Carbohydrates are all about energy and found in foods like fruits, vegetables, breads, pasta and diary products. Your body uses these foods to make glucose, which is your body’s main energy source. Glucose is a type of sugar that can be used tight away for energy or stored away to be used later. 

However, not all carbs are created equal. The best carbohydrates are those that contain a lot of fiber, like vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. These types of carbs take longer to break down into glucose and give you the most nutrients along with your calories. 


Refined carbs are sometimes referred to as "bad" carbs. These are carbs that have been processed to remove parts of the grain and have had sugar added. Common examples of refined or processed carbs are white bread, cakes and cookies.

sugars

There are two types of sugar, added sugar (which includes the well-known familiar granulated "table sugar" (sucrose), as well as concentrated sources like fruit juices and then there are naturally occurring sugars found in fruit, vegetables, full fate dairy, honey and unrefined carbs.

 

Glucose is what your body loves to use for quick energy, but sugar added to sweets and beverages like pop have a different impact on your health than the same sugar provided by a piece of fruit. Simple sugars include fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts & whole grains. These are naturally occurring sugars and they are valid energy sources. They also supply other nutrients that are important for nourishing a healthy body. When simple sugars are naturally found in foods and juices, they come with vitamins, minerals, protein, phytochemicals and fiber. The presence of fiber makes a significant difference because it slows down the absorption of sugar, which slows its impact on blood sugar.

So the next time you pass up on that mango or banana because you are trying to "cut back on sugar" – think again, there’s plenty of vitamin C, vitamin A, fiber to name a few, and even trace amounts of protein and iron !

calories

Which are good calories and which are bad? It’s helpful to use the principle of "clean eating" – so give preference to unprocessed foods in the purest forms. This includes things like fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts or eggs. You can fill up on these foods without giving much thought to your daily calorie intake limit. Variety amongst these items is key through.

The bad calories can be found in fast foods or "bad" sugar foods. Which follow exactly the opposite principle. They offer almost no nutrients, and a ton of empty calories. They only make you feel full temporarily, but usually lead to cravings shortly after. You can enjoy a bad calorie from time to time, but keep it to a minimum.
