High glycemic carbs
I've been cutting down on BF for the last month and a half. I went from 210-215 to about 202-205 now. I've cut out all my sugar just about and have been eating a pretty clean diet. Now to my question... Does it matter how many high glycemic carbs I take in as long as I'm not eating junk? My diet pretty much consist of a wheat wrap with chicken/pork/roast beef, spinach, tomatoes, onion, green peppers, with no sauce....no joke I eat like 3 of these a day. With a PB&J sometimes at night. I've noticed reading the nutrition labels that some of these contain a lot of carbs. But does that matter?

Pretty much what my food looks like Monday-Friday. I'm in college so I eat what the cafeteria can offer me. Beggars can't be choosers.

To help counter HI GI foods take some fiber with it in the form of powder, i use fiber supps (just soluble, no pysilium husk it actually slows your digestion too much) when ever i have high carb meals .

High glycemic vs low glycemic is always thrown around and I'm starting to just lean to IIFYM more and more. That doesn't mean junk but I'm not sweating over a white tortilla vs a wheat and things of that nature.
