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.
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?
