It seems like no matter what's going on in the nutrition world, someone is talking about carbs. The message varies from "carbs are bad for you" to "carbs are the healthiest thing ever" but, no matter what, these messages always seem to get some attention. I know this has left a lot of people confused about carbs and wondering how many carbs we should eat. Now, there isn't one number I can tell you because nutrition is more complicated than that, but I wanted to give you some tips and some guidelines so you can start to think about this stuff. Carbohydrates are a source of energy for our bodies and we need them. It's all about finding the right amount for you.
