    Carbohydrates are the fuel for your body’s cells. Some carbs are healthier than others, but they are necessary for your cells, body, and brain to function.

    Carbohydrates provide the energy the body needs to stay active. They come in three basic forms: sugars, fiber, and starches. Good sources of carbs are whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegatables. Candy, carbonated drinks, and table sugar are also forms of carbohydrates (specifically simple sugars) and can give the body some energy, but those should be eaten in moderation.

    Your brain is fueled by carbohydrates. Once your body breaks down a carbohydrate into glucose, the glucose travels through the blood stream to your brain. The body cannot store glucose like it stores fat, so you should eat a healthy amount of carbs every day.

    Carbohydrates are broken down into glucose which is a major molecule needed to complete cellular respiration. This is the process that produces ATP, what the body uses as energy for its necessary functions.
