Good Carbs versus Bad Carbs

Depending on who you talk to you need a certain amount of carbs in your diet to function optimally.  Some people say it's thirty or forty percent while others say it is considerably less.  Irregardless of the percentage it's the amount of carbs you ingest but the quality of them that makes them important.  If you are getting your daily carbs from sugar and processed wheat then you're heading in the wrong direction.  Remember the days when you were advised to load up on bagels and pasta to keep your energy levels up?  Not anymore!  Check out the following graphic for some good information on what kind of carbs you should be ingesting if you are training hard.

BTW - if you are abiding by a Paleo diet then most of these carbs are not within your grasp... sorry!
