How To Get Toned While Enjoying Carbs Guilt-Free

Simple vs. complex carbs

Carbs are not all created equal, and this is especially true of the distinction between simple and complex carbs. Simple carbs are the ones that are broken down the fastest — sweets, fruits, etc. (dried mangoes are one of my FAVORITES).
