Here is a great link with some good information on carbs:

You might want to try posting your question on the nutrition forum as well, and then one of the dieticians or nutritionists can give you an answer.

I would add more fruit, sweet potatos, corn, peas, etc. that will give you carbs...whole grain bread maybe? you can do it!

I'm really struggling with meeting my suggested daily amount of carbs and it's driving me nuts. I am a vegetarian and feel like I have plenty of rice, pasta, quinoa, all the things that I think are carby, I'm only hitting about 160 on a good day (my recommendation is 208-301).

Do you have any suggestions for this? Should I be eating more fruit, or what? I feel like I'm eating well, so it's frustrating to be so off on these numbers.
