    I'm curious as to what kind of things your eating to get only 75 carbs a day. it doesn't seem right to me to be able to get so much protein and calories and so little carbs.

    Hey bro, I'm assuming that you only count non-fiber carbs. The greatest product known to low-carb man is the whole wheat tortillas by La Tortilla Factory. 3 grams of effective carbs, 9 grams of fiber. They are incredible.

    Anyways, I was never able to get that much protein in my diet, I couldn't eat enough!

    Veggies and Fruits are a huge source of carbs. That is my source of carbs in my diet besides oatmeal. Even one single banana has around 30 grams of carbs in it.

    Well he said he doesn't count veggies as carbs, and that makes sense to me. 1/2 cup of brocolli only has 1 active carb.

    You don't count the carbs in your vegetables?
    Even corn, which has 17 per serving?

    You wanna get the green veg down like cauliflower, brocolli, sprouts etc...these are highly fibrous, have vits and minerals and are good for the digestive tract. They have very little in the way of carbs.

    Corn is not green veg.

    veges w/ no effective carbs- (ie they have some but are so difficult to digest one recieves no net carb intake)

    asparagus
    broccoli
    cabbage
    celery
    lettuce
    mushrooms
    onions
    radiccio
    radishes and
    spinach

    Any other veges should be counted as their carbs are more accessable in the digestive process
