    I know what most of the carbs I eat are but I'd like to see a good solid list of stuff I should aim for and stuff I should cut down on.

    it's not about simple vs complex...for example, fruit is all simple carbs and white bread is complex but which do you think is better for you?

    last i heard white bread was a simple carbohydrate due to the fact that the flour has been highly processed

    edit - i just looked it up on google and it seems that would still be the case.
