All about carbs

There are 2 types of carbs: simple and complex. They each affect blood sugar levels differently.

Simple carbs

Simple carbs are rapidly broken down in the gut and quickly raise blood sugar levels.

Sugars

Sugars can be found naturally in fruits, vegetables, and milk, or added to foods like cake and cookies.
