Our immediate source of fuel is carbohydrates. Carbohydrates that aren't immediately used by our body are stored in our muscles and liver as glycogen. Once the body has filled its tanks with glycogen, the excess carbohydrates are stored as fat. Between 60 to 65 percent of your diet should consist of carbohydrates, mostly complex (whole grains, legumes, potatoes, etc.) as opposed to simple (sugar, honey, corn syrup, etc.)
