    A whole wheat low carb/low fat tortilla... is this considered a good carb or a bad carb?

    http://www.latortillafactory.com

    I'm trying to decide if I can stick with this or if I should go back to sweet potatos.

    serious reply: don't worry too much about "good carbs." if a carb source has lots of fiber in it as well, it's probably "good carbs." whole wheat/whole grain/oats etc are all "good."

    they are good except for the 380mg of sodium. If sodium isn't a concern dig away.

    white rice is not bad, people.

    pay attention to calories, not necessarily sources of carbs. don't micro manage.

    good carbs, usually called low GI, are definitely more beneficial than 'bad' carbs...

    low GI carbs do just the opposite, plus they usually contain much more dietary fiber, which helps lower blood cholesterol and make you poo

    you're overanalyzing...white carbs aren't that much more beneficial, and certainly not from a body composition standpoint
