  • It takes a longer time to extract all the energy from the carb
  • Steady energy: no mid afternoon crashes. Fewer insluin spikes:Body responds to sugar with insulin. Too much sugar in the blood at one time (such as after eating), causes insluin spikes.Too many spikes is bad (type 2 diabetes)
  • In science, when plants make their food, they actually make glucose.Glucose is the simpliest sugar.
  • Transcript

    • 1. Lesson 1.1
      Complex Carbs
    • 2. Introduction
      Goal
      To understand the place of carbs in the diet
      Determine the ideal type of carbs
      Guiding Question
      What are carbs?
      What are complex carbs?
      Benefits of complex carbs?
      The exceptions to the”rule”?
      Where to get complex carbs?
    • 3. What are Carbs?
      Carbohydrates (aka carbs) fuel the body
      There are three kinds of carbs
      Simple
      Complex
      Dietary fiber
    • 4. Complex VS Simple. Difference?
      Carbs are a bunch of sugar molecules attached together
      Simple carbs are made of few sugar “pieces” or “units”
      Complex carbs are made of thousands of sugar pieces
    • 5. Your body can only use sugar pieces
      Hence, you digest the carbs into pieces, or glucose
      The bigger the carb, the harder it is to extract the glucose
      1000 pieces > 2 pieces
    • 6. Benefits?
      Steady energy
      Fewer insulin spikes
    • 7. Are simple carbs good too?
      Apples are sweet. They have lots of simple sugars.
      An apple a day keeps the doctor away
      How?
    • 8. Glycemic Index
      Glycemic Index: measure of how fast carbs are absorbed from food
      80 = Fast
      20 = Slow
      Created for the exceptions
    • 9. 1 slice White bread
      1 apple
      13 grams of carbs
      11 grams are complex
      Glycemic Index:
      64 – 87
      More complex
      Unhealthy
      17 grams of carbs
      1 gram from complex
      Glycemic Index
      38
      Less complex
      Very healthy
    • 10. Where to get it?
      Look for the words starch and sugars under carbohydrates
      Or calculate it
      Starches = Total carbs – fiber – sugars
    • 11. Finally
      The complex and simple strategy is the easiest “rule” we can follow
      Of the 2000 – 3000 calories we need a day, 45 – 65 % of it comes from carbs
      Might as well make it healthy carbs, eh?
    • 12. Next
      Turn to Support 1.1
      Take notes in Summary Notes
      Review and complete questions
