The course will show you how carbohydrates are macronutrients that contain hydrogen and oxygen and can be broken down to release much-needed energy in the human body. Protein, on the other hand, builds and repairs tissues. Some people shy away from fats but this macronutrient is also an essential part of our diet for maintaining good health.
