    good and bad veggies

    ok i already eat greens with my pro/fat meals because i know that they dont affect blood sugar levels

    i also know that corn, peas and carrots will elevate them and so should be avoided with a pro/fat meal

    but are there any others to be avoided, for instance what about peppers (all colours)? i have recently been eating these with pro/fat meals and really enjoying them but realised i didnt know for sure how they affected insuling/blood sugar

    any ideas? any other veggies to avoid?

    I eat a can of either green beans or asparagus everyday. I also buy "grape sized" tomatoes to snack on as I am cutting hardcore and pretty hungry. . .
    Broccoli is good too!

    I dont think either peppers or onion has any impact on blood sugar levels. Im not 100% sure but they should be ok. Peppers have so damn low carb content that even if the carbs where pure sugar it wouldnt matter and onions is also low on carbs and you dont realy cram down several onions every meal I assume

    by the way if you dont eat carrots then make sure you eat spinach to get the needed betakaroten.

    taiboxa onions are only 6% carbs. So one onion contains something like 7g carbs. I dont know about you guys but I dont eat more then max half a onion to the meals that have onion on it.

    taiboxa then its the same size. Damn you guys like onions lol.

    To much of it in food to me tastes like utter shit. G-force just limit the ammount of onion to half a onion per meal and I think your good to go.

    I wouldnt realy consider spinach and broccoli as veggies with higher carb content. Spinach only has 0.6% carbs and broccoli 2.8%. Spinach acctualy has less carbs then alfalfa sprouts that is on your d-list. So that list Im a bit sceptical against.

    You would have to eat several ibs of spinach for it to make any difference. 2.2ibs(1kg) of spinach has 6g carbs

    Maby we are not talking about the same when we say peppers(I mean different kinds of paprica(sp?))but you would have to eat something like 2ibs of paprica to get 20g carbs. Red is the worst one it has 4,6% carbs while the others have around 2,5%. So stick to green and yellow if you are eating ibs of it

    Maby a bit risky to say but I would say almost ALL veggies are okay to eat when cutting. Except the very few expectations like corn. Otherwise as long as you use a mix of several veggies and dont let one certain veggie dominate you will be fine.
    Even the ones with slightely higher carb content is ok just because of all the fibers in the veggies. They will slow down the gi to ridicilously low levels so it will hardly have any impact on blood glucose or insulin levels.
