Are beans, lentils, split peas, green peas, etc. high in carbs?
I want to know if it is okay for me to include beans, lentils, split peas, and green peas as part of my regular diet. I don't eat red meats nor chicken-turkey. I'm concern these grains will result in higher carbs consumption and affect my weight lost.by: ariruiz

Lots of fiber is good for you and helps to prevent hunger. My doctor just recommended 10-12 grams 3 times a day. Beans are a good source, but there are also other sources as well. You need some carbs and if you're working out, you shouldn't have issues with beans in moderation. Black beans are high in fiber....about 16 gms per cup. Try them in a whole wheat tortilla. It's the sugar, white rice and white pasta that has the carbs you don't want. Ever since I added the extra fiber, my energy is way up!
