Many dietary trends focus on low carbohydrate diets. Instead, they promote the consumption of high protein diets which  can lead to a number of different health complications. There seems to be a big misunderstanding about carbohydrates in society these days. Most Medical Doctors and “Nutritionists” recommend low carb diets, but I don’t blame them if their nutritional education comes from the meat and dairy council. 

Carbohydrates are essential for cellular energy and cellular function. There are two types of carbohydrates (simple and complex). It is ver important that one is not  mistaken with the other.

Grains are polysaccharides which are complex sugars. Fruits and vegetables are monosaccharides which are simple sugars. Both simple and complex sugars are carbon chained constituents. Thats why they are called carbohydrates. Carbon is essential to us over any fat or protein because carbon mixed with oxygen creates ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) which is a coenzyme used as an energy carrier in the cells.

The more complex a sugar is, the harder it is to digest making it acidic in the human body. Since complex sugars can’t be broken down properly by the body fungus comes into play and has to do it for us.

Fruits (simple sugars) are filled with minerals, vitamins, oxygen and water, making them very easy to digest. They energize, strengthen and tone every cell in our body. Fruits also move the lymphatic system, energize our nervous system and keep our blood pure and clean. The human brain and nervous system is the most evolved from all species on this planet, making fruits the best food a human can eat.

There is nothing “wrong” with eating complex carbohydrates. Just know, during an intense healing phase they should be drastically reduced, or best eliminated, depending on the level on your health condition that you wish to eliminate. If you are not suffering from acute or chronic health problems, you may consume grains, just make sure that the majority of your carbohydrate intake is from fruits and vegetables to maintain good levels of health. A plant based diet is always the healthier option as opposed to a diet that includes dead animals and their milks.
