When you look at whole (healthy) and fast (junk) foods side by side, it becomes clear that money is not the primary issue for most of us, even if we are on a tight budget. We’re not comparing apples to apples or even apples to oranges. We’re comparing apples to orange-flavored “fruit” snacks or Apple Jacks to oranges. The reasons why we aren’t choosing the “right” foods are different for each of us, but recurring themes emerge: We’re hooked on them, they taste good, they’re more convenient, they’re easier than learning to cook.
Starches (pasta, rice, bread, potato chips, flour tortillas), sugar, or foods high in sugar (cookies, candy, and cakes) have a higher respiratory quotient than protein and healthy fats. Foods that have a higher respiratory quotient metabolize into carbon dioxide quickly. Carbon dioxide is the by-product which escapes your lungs as you exhale. Having high carbon dioxide in the body makes you feel weak and tired. Simpler carbohydrates have a higher respiratory quotient, and therefore will make you feel less energized, weak, and tired. You should still consume complex carbohydrates for the many health benefits such as high fiber, vitamins, and minerals contained in these foods, but when choosing starchy foods always opt for the whole grain, whole wheat, whole oat, or whole corn option
