What are carbohydrates?
Carbohydrates are biomolecules that are found in many food types and ingredients, including bread, beans, milk, potatoes and spaghetti. The three most notable types of carbohydrates are sugars, starches and fibers.
Are carbohydrates bad for weight loss?
Carbohydrates on their own are not necessarily bad. However, many high carbohydrate diets are linked to weight gain or an inability to lose weight.
