Do I need to limit natural carbs like sweet potatoes on a plant based diet??? Or can I eat as much as I want?

Do I need to limit natural carbs like sweet potatoes on a plant based diet??? Or can I eat as much as I want?

Limit simple carbs: A plant-based diet is very healthy but I would limit processed simple carbs like white flour and white rice, as they tend to raise blood sugar. White potatoes and high-glycemic fruits like dates should also be limited but all of these are OK in moderation. Sweet potatoes actually raise blood sugar less than white potatoes!

Why does the media say eating "gluten free" can reduce glycemic spikes as gf still allows rice and buckwheat which is high carb?

The Media is Wrong: Good observation. "glycemic spikes" are due to carbohydrates not gluten. Gluten is found in wheat and many people who go "gluten-free" subsequently reduce their carb intake.

There is little evidence that it helps others. ...Read more
