Carbs is another term that when defined by 10 people yields 10 different answers.
Foods are made of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Foods are put into one of these groups based on their primary make-up. For example, vegetables and fruits generally have very little protein and fat relative to their carbohydrate content. They generally have some fiber and/or sugar in them which take different metabolic pathways during the digestion process than proteins and fats. Therefore, we put fruits and vegetables in the carbohydrate group. Bread and pasta also fall into this group.
Meat, eggs, and dairy are part of the protein group.
Foods with a relatively high-fat content like oils, avocado’s, butter, and cream can be put into the fat group.
