I’m working on a biology discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
In chapter 4 (The carbohydrates) you have learned about the importance of carbohydrates in a number of facets. However, unlike proteins, carbohydrates continue to be perceived as a “bad food” in the diet. Individuals believe that carbohydrates are the main cause of diabetes and obesity, and they may go to a great length to “avoid” carbohydrates. Discuss the fallacies in this. Are there different types of carbohydrates? Which carbohydrates are the healthiest? Identify two sources of unhealthy carbohydrates (food or beverage) in your diet and replace them with healthy carbohydrates.
