A Message from Dr. Garth Davis
Carbs are not the enemy — they are a source of energy, and are staples in the diets of the longest-living peoples in the world. For a few of my nutrition tips, visit my Kickstart page >
The human body runs on glucose, and where does that glucose comes from? Mainly from carbohydrates that we eat! Carbohydrate-rich foods are good for health, but some are better than others. Favor whole grains over refined ones.
