As title says, is it bad that mos tof my carbs comes from fruit/bananas?
(from nutrition edu, id imagine you want to hit each group)
o Prioritize vegetables which contain fibrous carbs (since they have a high nutrient density and a low caloric density, they can almost be eaten freely) such as
Green Leafy Lettuce (Green Leaf, Red, Leaf, Romaine)
Green or Red Pepper
o Starchy veggies (sweet potatoes, yam, legumes)
o Starchy products (Oat meal, oat bran, oat bran cereal, bran cereal, rice, whole-wheat pasta, 100% whole-grain products)
o Oatmeal (stick to the non-flavored/non-sugar packed ones, just plain oatmeal, the kind of oatmeal doesn't really matter)
o Legumes (they contain lots of protein but they usually are incomplete proteins and contain too much carb to be considered a protein source)
o Basically, the less refined stuff. Strive to eat stuff that was available a couple of hundred years ago and try to eat fewer food that come in a box.
i guess realisticly more comes from oats than the fruit/bananas.
But besides the oats, it's mostly Bananas
