Carbohydrates serve as the main energy source for the body. During digestion they are broken down into blood sugar so too many or too few carbohydrates can cause your blood glucose levels to spike or drop. The number of grams of carbohydrate one should eat each day varies per person. You should speak with your physician or dietitian to determine how many grams of carbohydrate you should eat each every day.
