The reasons that the carbs in something like a carrot or a slice of whole wheat bread are better than sugar:

1) They release slower into your bloodstream, so the meal gives you energy for more time.

2) They take longer to digest, so you stay full longer.

3) Fiber doesn't have any calories your body can use, but it fills your stomach, and it helps keep your digestion healthy.

4) Your body needs the vitamins and minerals. Bread is packed with B vitamins and iron, carrot has vitamin A, etc. Some people claim that if you don't get enough nutrients, you'll stay hungry even after you've eaten enough calories.
