OK I can remember processed foods "simple" I don't eat processed so that should be easy to remember...

I know I learned all this in class but about 100 other things to remember were discussed...

So glad I have SP Friends emoticon
Thanks Plovett

Natural grains are complex. It a food item has been processed it is simple. For example: A potato is complex but a potato is simple. You are correct in that you have to look at the carb count. When eating rice, for example, 1/4 cup is about the max.

Carbs are broken into two groups. Simple carbs and complex. We want to eat complex carbs. Why? Because the digestion of complex carbohydrates takes longer. The slow absorption of sugars provides us with a steady supply of energy and limits the amount of sugar converted into fat and stored! Simple carbs break down very fast and we can't handle the fast pace/rush of sugar that simple carbs provide. Hope this helps.

Hello and Thank you for reading and I hope answering my question....

I was recently diagnosted as a "Border Line Diabetic" I have to watch what I eat and exercise...I am having an on going conversation with some members of my Weight Watchers class and with my leader....I was told when I went to classes for Diabetes I could have 30-60 grams of carbs PER MEAL...My discussion with my Weight Watcher people is that there are Good and Bad Carbs....

My issue is I was told to look at nutritional information and go with Total Carbs...not to look for good and/or bad...

HELP..I hope you understand my confusion it is hard to explain
Thank You emoticon emoticon emoticon
