NOT ALL CARBS ARE CREATED EQUAL
Carbs are important for brain function and energy when you choose the correct sources. Processed carbs (pizza, white bread, white sugar, etc.) should be avoided as a major part of daily nutrition, and a focus should be on a balanced intake of whole grains and sources from vegetables such as sweet potatoes. Carbohydrate intake has a correlation to the function of the thyroid gland, so low-carb fad diets that advocate for this macronutrient to be limited or cut out entirely can have an impact on your body’s ability to regulate your metabolic rate.
