No carbs before marbs

I woke up this morning with a horrible chesty cough, sore throat and a fever. I feeling so miserable it was hard to drag myself out of the bed. Im not the greatest patient at all. I soldered on and went to work, thanks to the fever i didnt feel one bit cold today.

I was really busy in work today thank god. I had made plans to meet a work friend today for coffee i wasnt looking forward to it because i was feeling so ill but i went and insteas of coffee o had a blue wicked Alcohol drink now im well aware that you should never mix alcohol with medication but it made me feel relaxed and helped to ease my sore throat .

After work i went to visit dad he was told his carbohydrate levels were very high so i went home to talk to him about it and explain what carbs are and how to read the % on labels. As the girls in TOWIE say no carbs before marbs.

Carbohydrates are the sugars, starches and fibers found in fruits, grains, vegetables and milk products. Though often maligned in trendy diets, carbohydrates — one of the basic food groups — are important to a healthy diet.

“Carbohydrates are macronutrients, meaning they are one of the three main ways the body obtains energy, or calories,carbohydrates are the body’s main source of energy. They are called carbohydrates because, at the chemical level, they contain carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.

There are three macronutrients: carbohydrates, protein and fats, Smathers said. Macronutrients are essential for proper body functioning, and the body requires large amounts of them. All macronutrients must be obtained through diet; the body cannot produce macronutrients on its own.

Good carbs are:

  • Low or moderate in calories
  • High in nutrients
  • Devoid of refined sugars and refined grains
  • High in naturally occurring fiber
  • Low in sodium
  • Low in saturated fat
  • Very low in, or devoid of, cholesterol and trans fats
