carbs vs sugars
Posted Friday, December 20, 2013 at 3:59 PM

when reading a nutrition label, is there a difference we should look at when assessing these two?

I ask because, I see something 'healthy' like oats can still be high in carbs, but low or 0 grams sugar, same for brown rice and some other high-fiber cereals.

So is fiber still sugar / carb? In trying to eat healthily, should we focus on the sugars, so for example say I eat cereal which is high in carbohydrate but low in sugar, is that okay?

I think Its obvious to avoid the things that have lots of sugar added, like cinnamon toast crunch or candy bars!

Thanks guys. I really need to tame my sweet tooth!!
