Carbs provide the body’s most easily accessible energy source, glucose, which is the reason we crave them when we are tired or run-down.

It’s quite debatable whether carbohydrates are essential for human nutrition, but for most people, they’re the fuel their body runs on. Going on an extreme low-carb or no-carb diet causes some folks to have barely enough energy to hoist a coffee cup in the morning. At the opposite end of the scale, overdoing it on carbs, even the good ones, ends up having a negative impact on mood, weight, energy, digestion, immunity, and more. In my practice, I would say most people seem to eat more carbs than their metabolism can handle.
