I try to avoid about 90% of unhealthy carbs but its difficult to do so in North America where you don't demand food that isn't super-refined and natural.
I'm not able to wade thru 13 pages either ..........

I thought I knew all the answers, but I missed 3, so there go my bragging rights to knowing everything there is to know about carbohydrates. But as a vegan and runner I still regard carbs as my friend.

Carbs are my downfall,. I could happily exist on bread and potatoes I I would gladly take a piece of bread over a cookie or two. I limit my intake and fill up on proteins and fibre.
