Carbs from fruit and veggies??

  1. Carbs from fruit and veggies??


    I have a rather sinple question.. I want to keep around 100 grams of carbs a day.. Does adding the carbs from fruit/veggies matter?? (lettuce, tomatoes, bananas, strawberries, pinapples....) Or should i just count whole grains foods?? Thanks


  2. Yes they will matter. Many veggies have few carbs though, root veggies have substantially more. Fruit is loaded with carbs, some more than others.

    Yup. As said, they DO MATTER. Count the carbs in them.


    The only carbs I wouldn't be concerned with counting are the carbs found in green leafy vegetables like salad, broccoli, green beans and so forth.

  4. The sugar content in banana's and pineapple is outrageous to begin with so yes they count

  5. Fruit definitely! I don't worry about carbs from green veggies though. Haven't eaten a banana in over a year, lol.

    It's okay man. You don't have to hate yourself. You can have a banana. I promise you won't get fat.
