By Darell Echivarre

Ask Chris about carb selection, he has lost over 70 lbs.

Whole, unprocessed carbohydrate sources have significant
health and performance benefits that might go unnoticed with
macronutrient counting. For example, a doughnut and an orange
can both provide the carbohydrate grams one needs, but other
constituents should be considered. Even honey has more health
value compared to table sugar due to the vitamins and minerals
it contains. This brief describes some of the factors to consider
when selecting carbohydrates, including total carbohydrate
grams. While the brief is not meant to be exhaustive, this information
can help someone make more optimal choices based on
needs and goals.
When selecting a carbohydrate, consider these components:


• Total carbohydrate (for body composition)
• Non-caloric constituents (for health)
• Fiber (for satiety)
• Glucose vs. fructose (for recovery)
