The other two are protein and fat.” Dietary carbohydrates can be split into three main categories including sugars, starches and fiber. Their main purpose is to provide energy, but they can also be turned into fat or stored energy for later use. Fiber does not provide energy directly, however, but it does feed the friendly bacteria in the digestive system which are then used to produce fatty acids that some of our cells can use as energy.
Part 2 of the paper took the ARIC (US) study above and claimed to have combined it with seven other population studies in a meta-analysis. Three of the seven other studies were from Europe: Lagiou et al – Swedish women; Nilsson et al – Swedish men and women; and Trichopoulou et al – Greek men and women. Two were from the US.
