I love foods that are high in carbohydrates.
According to Atkins' "carb counter", a can of ice cold Coca Cola has "35 carbs"
They have "omitted pizza chains from the listings because other than baked chicken wings with Buffalo sauce, their offerings are inherently high in carbs"
Both of those things also represent a ton of calories.
But yeah, I avoid carbs. Not to cut carbs, but to cut calories. I can have a two chicken sausages (Johnsonville, 170 calories x 2) with a whole mess of peppers, onions, etc. and a little BBQ (1 tbsp of Sweet Baby Rays 35 calories) sauce or something similar. For a total of 375 calories and some change.
Or I can have single sausage on a bun (110 calories) with BBQ sauce for a total of 315 calories.
2 whole chicken sausages with peppers/onions etc. is a PILE of food and feels like an entire meal to me. You can only fit so much other 'stuff' into a bun, unless you go with an Italian roll (at 200 calories or more!). One single sausage on a bun doesn't seem like nearly as satisfying of a meal as does the plateful of other stuff.
For just 60 more calories, I'm getting a ton more food.
So, yeah, I often avoid carbs but not for the carbs sake. It's for the calorie savings that I replace with other things.
