    Our body actually needs a significant amount of carbohydrates to stay healthy and happy. Carbohydrates are the main source of energy for our body and are essential for proper brain function and physical activity.

    True or False: Diets low in fiber increase the risk of heart disease and can elevate cholesterol.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Diets low in fiber increase the risk of heart disease and can elevate cholesterol. This is because fiber helps to lower cholesterol levels by binding to cholesterol in the digestive tract and preventing its absorption into the bloodstream. Additionally, fiber-rich diets promote healthy digestion and prevent constipation, which can contribute to heart disease. Therefore, a diet low in fiber can indeed increase the risk of heart disease and raise cholesterol levels.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Simple carbohydrates are also called simple sugars or monosaccharide because they consist of one or two sugar molecules that are easily broken down and absorbed by the body. On the other hand, complex carbohydrates are also called starches or polysaccharide because they are made up of long chains of sugar molecules that take longer to break down and provide a more sustained release of energy.

    Explanation
    Oatmeal is a complex carbohydrate, not a simple carbohydrate. Simple carbohydrates are composed of one or two sugar molecules, while complex carbohydrates are made up of multiple sugar molecules. Oatmeal contains a type of complex carbohydrate called beta-glucan, which is a soluble fiber that provides various health benefits. Therefore, the pair "simple carbohydrate:oatmeal" does not belong because oatmeal is not a simple carbohydrate.

    Complex, starchy carbohydrates are not necessarily the best choice to keep a healthy, happy body. While they can provide sustained energy and essential nutrients, an excessive intake of these carbohydrates can lead to weight gain and an increased risk of chronic diseases. It is important to have a balanced diet that includes a variety of nutrient-dense foods, including fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats.

    Explanation
    The average person should eat roughly 6 ounces of carbohydrates every day. This is because carbohydrates are a major source of energy for the body and are needed for various bodily functions.

It is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian to determine the specific carbohydrate needs for an individual.

    Explanation
    The question asks for the option that does NOT equal one ounce. While 1/2 of an English muffin, 1 slice of bread, and 1/4 of a bagel may or may not equal one ounce depending on their size and density, 1 cup of pasta is a larger quantity and generally weighs more than one ounce. Therefore, 1 cup of pasta does NOT equal one ounce.
