Some vegetables like potatoes, beets, peas, corn, carrots etc. cause a larger spike in blood sugar due to more carbs. On Atkins they are considered BAD. However, even on Atkins, after Induction, you can have these in limited quantities. Starting with OWL, you can work up to starchy vegetables, although potatoes, and corn still seem too high for me. I do like peas 1-2 times a month though. Raw carrots less often.
If you are near maintenance, or on a more relaxed low carb plan though, you can probably have them all, just watch the quantity. Carrots are better than carrot cake..lol.
