There are two types of carbs. One type is known as processed carbs, which are the ones that come from food products such as white bread and pasta. All processed white carbohydrates are the most dangerous and, unfortunately, are the most commonly consumed.

What foods contain good carbs? How can you avoid eating the bad ones?
