Let’s talk about Carbohydrates! I hear it all the time, “carbs will make you fat”. WRONG!!! Eating too much and moving too little, aka Calories In vs. Calories Out, will make you gain weight.
According to the Institute of Medicine, the Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range for carbohydrate intake for an adult is 45 to 65% of your daily caloric intake. Complex carbohydrates (such as whole grains, fresh fruits, and vegetables) should constitute the majority of calories because of their nutrient-dense (providing B vitamins, iron, and fiber) nature.
