This is all very useful info in your replies guys thank you. I guess I need to know what your opinion is of the best option for a carbohydrate to go with meat. More of a dinner-oriented item. I simply cannot function without carbs as our bodies were not meant to. I am not meaning indulgent, good tasting varieties, just a good safe source that I can put with meat to create a balanced meal. I go to school 17 units a semster, go to the gym every day, and work almost full time. Can’t perform properly on a diet with only protein and fiber really. I genuinely appreciate your info.
