The g.i. factor: what makes a high carbohydrate diet?

        THE G.I. FACTOR: WHAT MAKES A HIGH CARBOHYDRATE DIET?
Carbohydrate is a part of food. Starch is a carbohydrate, so too are sugars and certain types of fibre. Starches are nature's reserves created by energy from the sun, carbon dioxide and water. The building block of starch is glucose, a single sugar.
The simplest form of carbohydrate is a single sugar molecule. Chemically, this sugar molecule is known as a monosaccharide (mono meaning one, saccharide meaning sweet). Glucose is a single sugar molecule which occurs in foods and is the most common source of fuel for the cells of the human body.
Eating a high carbohydrate diet means:
? eating carbohydrate-rich foods at every meal and making sure that carbohydrates form a large proportion of the meal,
? eating carbohydrate-rich foods for snacks,
? including at least the minimum quantity of carbohydrate foods suggested for small eat.
Eating a high carbohydrate diet also means:
? not eating too much protein or fat. High fat foods are concentrated source of kilojoules. It takes only a small extra amount of them to throw your diet out of balance. Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats may have desirable effects on blood lipid levels but all fats have the same energy value and same propensity for 'overconsumption.
Remember, if you are eating a high carbohydrate diet then you'll automatically be eating less fat.
