  • Carbohydrates are the main source of energy for our body – they are the energy that gets used first (before protein and fat)
  • Without carbs, protein from our muscles would be used instead.  This means that your body would be eating it’s own muscles that you’ve worked so hard to build!
  • Focus on the eating the proper amount of good, WHOLE GRAIN, carbs for you!  Use the chart above as guidance, or find more tips on our Pinterest page.
