    Frederick C. Hatfield, Ph.D.:

    Calorie -- The Calorie used as a unit of metabolism (as in diet and energy expenditure) equals 1,000 small calories, and is often spelled with a capital C to make that distinction. It is the energy required to raise the
    temperature of one kilogram of water one degree Celsius. Also called a
    kilocalorie (kcal).

    Carbohydrate -- Chemical compound of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen, usually with the hydrogen and oxygen in the right proportions to form water. Common formsare starches, sugars, cellulose, and gums. Carbohydrates are more readily used for energy production than are fats and proteins. One of the three basic foodstuffs (proteins and fat are the others). Carbohydrates are a group of chemical substances including sugars, glycogen, starches, dextrins, and cellulose. They comprise the body's main source of raw material for energy. They contain only carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen. Usually the ratio of hydrogen to oxygen is 2:1. Carbohydrates can be classified as either a simple carbohydrate or a complex carbohydrate.

    you've got a lot to learn about nutrition if you dont know the answer to that question. Dont they teach it in school ? Our health teacher over here just started talkin about the calorie requirements and all her BS this year.

    calories are used as energy. They come in 3 forms : Carbs, fats, and protein.
    The explanation in the above post tells you how many cals per gram of each. Carbs are just the MAIN energy source.
    Hehehehe Hahahaha Whohohohoh

    Just throwin some logic in there.

    It is a good question. There are carbs and there are carbs. Carbs are simple or complex. They can be healthy or not, and depending on the time and place, useable or dan-gerous to you.

    *Some kinds promote health while others, when eaten often and in large quantities, actually increase the risk for diabetes and coronary heart disease.

    *Simple carbohydrates included sugars such as fruit sugar (fructose), corn or grape sugar (dextrose or glucose), and table sugar (sucrose). Complex carbohydrates included everything made of three or more linked sugars. Simple sugars were considered bad and complex carbohydrates good. The picture is much more complicated than that...


    *Source http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritio...ohydrates.html

    The question about carbs is a good question because even the wise among us seldom know all about it, and have less time that is needed to discuss it. The link above helps to explain the difference in carbohydrates and their sources. White bread, it says, is almost immediately converted to blood sugar, and causes it to spike , while brown rice by contrast converts more slowly and changed blood sugar in a more gentle curve.

    Online there is a glycemic index which will help you identify one carb from another, as well as help you count your carb intake.(below) It has a search feature.

    http://www.glycemicindex.com/

    PS: And to the members thinking to dis the subject, take biology before you call a question about food and health cut-and-dried.

    regards,
    ffloyd
