I have been told to limit simple sugars (aka simple carbs?) Is it OK to have fruit? Which fruits and veggies contain the most complex carbs?
Starch is a complex carb. Most vegetables are high in fiber but low in both sugar and starch so are excellent for low-carb diets. Starchy vegetables contain more starch. They include white and sweet potatoes, corn and peas, but each of these contains less than 10g of carbohydrate in a serving. For comparison, a slice of whole wheat bread contains about 12g of carbohydrate.
I would suggest you consult a registered dietitian who can help you plan your diet with consideration of the medical reason you were told to limit simple sugars. You can find a registered dietitian at www.eatright.org , or your physician may be able to recommend someone to you.
