Not all carbohydrates are bad for you. As a diabetic I have learned that simple carbs which come from sugars and fruits give immediate energy and what is not needed are stored as fat. The complex carbohydrates which are found in rice, oatmeal, potatoes, whole wheat breads for example supply the body with an energy source that last for several hours. and the fibrous carbs contain cellulose. These are vegtables that should be steamed but not overcooked. I like potatoes very much but white potatoes should be replaced by sweet potatoes in a diabetic diet because they are low on the glycemic index compared to white potatoes. Pasta is another favorite of mine but it must be cooked aldente.This causes the spaghetti to be slowly digested and produces a slower Blood Sugar elevation.
