Calories and Carbohydrates

Average Calorie & Carbohydrate Needs for Adults

Carbohydrates are low in calories (1 gram = 3.75 calories) and are a great source of energy. Main stream diet nutritionists advise that about 50 percent of our total calories should come from carbs. However it is important to chose most of your carb-calories from lower glycemic index food. Lower glycemic index foods are more slowly absorbed by the body and help to maintain stable blood sugar levels. Examples of low GI foods are: beans, peas, lentils, nuts, seeds, whole wheat bread, oats, barley, pasta, Basmati rice, apples, avocados, cherries, grapefruit, grapes, olives, oranges, peaches, corn. See also Glycemic Index
