Sigh, I wish it were as easy for humans to burn off excess carbohydrates from our fat stocks.
What's the difference between a hydrocarbon and a carbohydrate anyway? Both have hydrogen and carbon atoms right? I'm sure the chemical structure is different but I'm looking more for a layman explanation. Is a -carbon primarily carbon and a -hydrate primarily water?
