All of us are bound by chains related to what food to eat or to avoid. Everyone seems to have their own notion about the right or wrong food habits. This Independence Day, I want to free you from the heaviest of the chains related to the myth around consumption of carbohydrates.
In the last few years, carbohydrates have come to be portrayed as demon foods that can do no good to our body. The truth is that complex carbohydrates are a good source of nutrients, fibre and energy. They increase the digestion time, thus keeping us fuller for longer. They help to curb the need to munch during the day as well as post a light dinner. Also, they provide the much-needed energy during the day and nutrients for body repair at night.
