I think I agree with a carb is a carb perspective when talking about fruit for this reason. Program I am on talks about a serving of fruit as it equals 15g of carbs, PERIOD. So, if I choose to eat a Banana, it is only 56g weight of banana that equates to 15g of carbs - not much banana. But that same 15g of carbs is better in an apple at 105g weight... but even better for the strawberries, which you get 106g of strawberries. Each is still ONLY 15g of carbs.
That is why I agree, but only as it pertains to looking at it in that context. Same with swapping out bread for potatoes, or rice, or whatever... I can have 150 g of potatoes at a meal, but if I am craving corn for instance, it equates to about 126gms of weight.. not as much food. The carbs are the same, the amount of food you get is different.
Hope that makes sense.
