Depending on who you follow or what you’ve been taught, carbohydrates have always been looked at from all sorts of angles, and, a lot of the time, are attacked quite aggressively. This is why I wanted to continue our nutrition series with Rebel’s nutrition coach, Erin Murray, to talk all things carbs and provide a very well-rounded discussion around carbohydrates. What are they? Why do you need them? Why are they important? What are good sources? How do they affect blood sugar? How many carbs should you be eating? Listen in to discover the ins and outs of carbohydrates so you can level up on all things nutrition.

What You'll Learn in this Episode:

  • [04:35] Background information on carbohydrates
