you dont take those carb sources out on a low carb diet, you just eat less of them. No better carb source out there than oats and brown rice

Unless you are tired of eating them, I wouldn't take out low/moderate gi carbs out of your diet.

I think he is asking for alternatives to brown rice and oats.
You could try sweet potatos.

lentils are great because of the fiber, low carb (relatively) and high protein.
Steel cut oats are best for your purposes here, and whole multi-grain hot cereal (made of rye, oat, wheat, and others) are great too!

I will admit I am not a big diet guy so I don't know about this stuff.
But really there are basically only 3 or 4 kinds of low GI carbs to eat?

How low of low carb are we talkiing? Ketogenic? If it's ketogenic then I would't bother with "filler food" and get your caloric quota through proteins and healthy fats. If you need a "filler" then you can just cook lean ground beef.Originally Posted by MadJimF
if it's not ketogenic then the guys above me covered some bases.

Like they've said, just cut back on the healthy carbs like brown rice, rolled oats, steel-cut oats, sweet potatoes, etc. You still need the carbs for energy to have good workouts. You can replace some of the cals with healthy fats from things like olive oil, coconut oil, omega fats, natty pb, and the like.
