Hi, this is Rachael Richardson with Nutrolution Incorporated in South Beach, Florida. In this clip, we're talking about good carbohydrates versus bad carbohydrates, and this is such an easy topic that you're going to remember this and you're going to have it in your repertoire of knowledge to help you out through your nutrition and your health world for the rest of your life. Very, very simple. Good carbohydrates are carbohydrates that you can pick from a tree or pick from a ground...from the ground. It's whole foods, healthy carbohydrates. So some examples are things like blueberries, things like lettuce, foods like asparagus -- all these foods grow in the ground or come from a tree, and you can easily get them. They're not processed at all. Now, on the converse, the bad carbohydrates are the ones that have to go through processing and adding of chemicals. So things like cereal, things like processed breads, processed pastas -- all of these, we have very, very little nutritional value that we get for them...from them, and they just add to some of the toxic load in our systems. This is Rachael with Nutrolution in Miami Beach, Florida.
