In The Flow Nutrition


Jun 28, 2019

Carbohydrates, perhaps more than any other nutrient found in food, has drawn years of controversy, confusion, and even fear. Today on In The Flow, I break down the fundamentals of carbohydrates and look at this class of macronutrient through an evidence-based lens, and connect to some reason and sense to help you better understand the truth. In this conversation, we'll discuss:

  • the basic definition and function of carbohydrates from a biochemical and physiological perspective.
  • how we arrived at this fear surrounding carbs and the problem with demonization of one single nutrient and "nutritionism".
  • the importance of carbohydrate for athletes and active humans.
  • plant-based nutrition and carbohydrates.
