Carbs help with storage and transport of energy (starch, glycogen) and and their derivatives play important roles in the working process of the immune system, fertilization, pathogenesis, blood clotting,

As the above poster said. Carbs are use for energy storage in the form of glycogen. Too many carbs and you get an insulin ****e and your body stores it as fat.

Carbs in the form of Whole Wheat and Whole Grain is what you want. The only other time you want ****ty carbs and sugars is after you train/workout. Grab a gatorade or eat a donut or some PB&J

Your body has depleted it's ATP source so it's looking for any kind of energy it can, it's just for a quick boost of energy

Because after you train your glycogen stores are depleted and you need something fast burning and believe it or not high in sugar. You're body is looking for anything it can get to get energy back in the body and something like Jelly on White Bread, Gatorade, Bagel or a Glazed Donut is ideal.

i got to respectfully disagree. just b/c you hear that carbs/sugar are okay after your workout, doesnt give you a free pass to binge. yes, if you were to eat that donut at any time during the day, the best time would be post workout. but in reality why not just go with a banana sammich on some wheat bread with protein shake.
