Not all carbohydrates have the same effect on the human body. They are ranked in terms of their effect on blood sugar. Foods with high Gis such as sugar cause a sharp spike in blood sugar followed by a sudden drop accompanied by a feeling of fatigue. Eating foods with low GIs like whole grain bread, vegetables, brown rice and beans will help you feeling steady because they digest slowly therfore causing a gradual increase in blood sugar. There are simple carbohydrates made of sugars and starches that break down quickly and cause the release of extra insulin, burdening our metabolism. Complex carbs are metabolized slower and provide a steadier stream of glucose and other nutrients. As a result, they're less work and stress for the body. The simple carbs are high glycemic meaning they are broken down and digested quickly. The complex carbs are low-glycemic meaning they digest slower. Simple carbs contribute to being overweight.
