Written by Lee Dobbins


Continued from page 1

Raw Vegetables = 1 cup Cooked Vegetables = ½ cup Raw Fruit = 1 medium fruit or ½ cup cut up or canned fruit Juice (Fruit or Vegetable) = 3/4 cup

It’s easier than you think!

If you want to get in your 5 a day and only add 25 g carbs total to your daily carb intake, you simply need to find fruits and veggies whose serving size is around 5 grams of net carbs each. When figuringrepparttar carb amounts in fruits and vegetables, it is important to remember to subtractrepparttar 131491 fiber fromrepparttar 131492 total carbs to getrepparttar 131493 “net carbs”. This is because fiber is not digestible and does not convert to glucose, therefore it doesn’t count as a carbohydrate in your low carb budget. So if you have a piece of fruit that is 10 carbs and 4 grams fiber your net carbs is only 6 grams! The fruits and vegetables listed below are shown with their net carb amounts.

Below I have listed out 29 choices you can add to your diet for under 10 grams (approx) of net carbs for each serving (as defined byrepparttar 131494 USDA). You can mix and match, so for instance if you ate spinach at 1 grams for 1 serving you could then have strawberries for 8 grams of net carbs and still not go overrepparttar 131495 10 grams for both servings.

Artichoke ............. 7.5g Asparagus ............. 2g Avocado ............. 5g Beets ............. 8g Broccoli ............. 2.6g Carrot ............. 5g Cauliflower ........... 3g Celery ............. 1/2g cucumber with peel..... 6g Eggplant .............3g Green beans ...........5g Kumquat (1) ...........3g Lettuce .............1g Mushrooms .............4g Passion fruit .........4g Peach .............9g Peas .............10g Peppers .............10g Plum .............8g Prunes (dried) ........5g Rhubarb .............7g Spaghetti squash ......1/2g Spinach .............1g Strawberries ..........8g Swiss chard ...........7g Tangerine .............8g Tomato .............2.5g Yellow squash .........2.5g Zucchini .............3.5g
