    I don't eat many grains, but I definitely don't eat low carb. I eat a HUGE amount of vegetables and fruit, and my energy is actually better than before.

    It's not for everyone though, some people feel better when they are eating grains.


    I just wanted to reiterate that grains aren't the only source of carbs.

    So brown rice would be ok then?? I have just made the change a few weeks ago - thought my husband was going to whine about it but to my surprise he actually prefers brown rice. My favorite lunch at the moment brown rice salad with lentils and tuna. So filling and yum. Dress with a little olive oil lemon juice and salt. When extra hungry I add an egg as well!

    I think peas, corn and carrots are quite high in carbs, from memory

    Pretty much all vegetables do, fruit even more so. Not all vegetables are HIGH in carbohydrate though which is why you need to increase your vegetable/fruit intake if you are reducing grains, otherwise you may end up on a low carbohydrate diet.

    I think we must all be different when it comes to diet because a diet high in grains makes me chronically exhausted, where as others will experience the opposite effect.

    I find it so interesting actually.

    Yes, almost all veggies have some carbs ... some more than others. Actually carrots are quite carby, as are peas and obviously potato (very high) and sweet potato. Leafy greens like lettuce, spinach, broccoli are quite low. Fruits are carby too - some of the highest are bananas (actually very high), apples, pears, oranges. Berries are low.

    Legumes like chickpeas are also quite high in carbs, as are most beans (kidney beans, borlotti beans, etc ... but green beans are low). And corn is really a grain, not a vegetable. It is high in carbs.

    Humans don't need as much carbohydrates as most people tend to eat, unless you're an athlete.

    Some excellent info there, thanks. I usually go to the gym 5 days a week and burn around 500+cals a session so I like to keep the carbs there, but not too high. I've been eating grained bread (hate rye unfortunately) and wasn't sure what else I could replace it with.
