I too have a hard time keeping my carb intake high enough according to spark people. However, my body doesn't seem to need quite the amount they recommend and I seem to feel great coming in a bit lower. Still, I agree, beans are excellent sources of carbs as are most fruits.

Try oatmeal, it's got a lot of water which gives it bulk, it's relatively slow to digest, and should fill you up more. Another great filling but not too caloric option is refried beans. I buy these great rice tortillas, put 1/3 cup of refried beans in, fold in half and fry in cooking spray. Eat with salsa, the spicier the better. 200 calories, nice mix of carb and protein. I often eat that for breakfast but fried in 1 tsp oil and with a fruit and glass of soy milk. Then the whole deal is about 400 calories, sticks to the ribs all day, and has a great balance of carb, protein, fat, and has fruit and veg.

My third idea would be bean or potato soup, which would have a little more bulk but also give you some carbs. Or have a little peanut butter on your banana to help it stick with you longer.

bananas are great because they are mostly all carbs, but the problem I find with a lot of the carb heavy food I can eat, is that the portions tend to be smaller, and I am still hungry, but I can't eat too much of them or I go over my daily intake goals for calories.

I guess I can try harder to balance them out. This is really hard. It is a whole lifestyle change and finding enough of everything your body needs without Glut. is difficult.

Looks like I need to really assess my diet. :)

Thanks!

Since starting my journy on the GF path I have found it very difficult to get my carb intake up to where it should be. I do a lot of hard workouts (roller derby) and would greatly apprecaite any insight anyone can give to me.

Any suggestions on where to turn? (I tried to eat a bread product before practice to help keep my energy up and very bad things happened. Won't make that mistake again.)

Thanks!
