Carbohydrates provide energy for the body to function.

Major sources of carbohydrates are sugars (table sugar, honey, fruit juices, sugar cane, beets, maple syrup, etc.) and starches (potatoes, corn, beans, rice, wheat flour, etc.)

When your body does not get enough carbohydrates it must convert stored body fat in to fatty acids that can then be used as energy sources.
