What is a carb? According to the general public, media, untrained physicians and any author who wants to make money with a diet book, carbs are foods made from grains like bread, pasta and rice.
This is simply not true. Carb is short for carbohydrate and carbohydrates include not just grain foods but also all fruits and all vegetables. This category also includes sugars but believe it or not, they’re not a food group.
So the next time you mean a grain, call it a “grain” instead of “carb.”
