You can ask your local grocery store to order gluten free products. Our local store is getting a wider variety but I still make an hour trip to whole foods about once a month. Sweet potatoes, rice and beans are carbs as well as fruits and vegetables. I am usually on the low side of my carb allotment each day but I do get enough.

Eating gluten free for me has meant that I have dramatically increased the amount of vegetables in my diet. I am also including rice and beans which I didn't before.

I have tried to reduce the amount of processed foods in my diet, including GF products. I am having trouble trying to get enough meat/protein in now because all the veggies fill me up!!

Brown rice, wild rice, and quinoa are carbs that can be eaten and are gf. If you really miss pastas, breads, etc...JC has a good suggestion that you try to order them online.

I haven't had to do that yet. YET!

Rice, fruit, milk products, fruit, fruit juice, fruit popsicles, more fruit....
Carbs is the one thing I DON'T have a problem getting!
Probably half of mine right now come from fruit, the other half from rice, rice cakes, beans and milk products (milk, yogurt, ice cream).

I live in a big metropolitan area and have the same problem.
At one visit with my Dr he mentioned that I wasn't on a low carb diet. At the next visit, I mentioned how Sparkpeople usually says I don't get enough and he said to not worry about it.
Have you looked into shopping online? I've heard that Amazon and Gluten Free Mall are good places. I find enough locally I don't buy on-line. Others can guide you better there.

I have a gluten intolerance, if I plan ahead I can eat some foods with gluten, but in my kitchen I cook gluten free because it is an easier way of life for me. I live in a very small town with limited choices for GF foods, much less being able to afford them all the time when I find them, but I am finding since starting sparkpeople that I am not getting enough carbs. Does anyone else have this problem? Or perhaps a solution?
