Can someone give me some reliable information on carbohydrates in vegetables?

Basically my aunt thinks I'm crazy for cutting out all the bad carbs; bread, pasta, cereal etc. Does anyone know where I can get a breakdown of all the carbohydrates in natural fruit and vegetables?

Furthermore, I know there are some people who don't even eat carbohydrates in fruit and vegetables but I'm not that strict as I think you need fruit and vegetables, so what I'm really asking for is strong arguments opposing grains, potatoes etc. and the carbohydrate breakdown in fruit and vegetables.

I wasn't referring specifically to the carbohydrates, but the fact that you lumped them in with grains. Starches are not one of the NAD.

still quite carbohydrate dense. i know its not potatoes; but I weighed some sweet potatoes and if you want to stay 100g or below you could eat pretty much 2 sweet potatoes, depending on size of course, and it equated to 90g so you got to make sure you dont go too overboard with the tubers.

yep, but they're still quite carbohydrate dense. still though, suppose they're a far better option than grains.

Cronometer is free and is the best resource I have found for tracking food intake. You can plug in a fruit or vegetable and then see how many carbs, nutrients, etc.

Also, potatoes are fine.

I use fatsecret.com to track what I'm doing - it has a nice social side too if you want that. CalorieCount.com has this as well.

It's a little clumsy but I like the USDA site.

I use Daily Burn to get nutrient info. Probably others just as good. I like it because they have brand names. http://dailyburn.com/nutrition/food_search You might have to register.

Yes, Veggies are good but NO you really don't need fruit on any regular bases.

Do the google.
