Tried looking all over the forums for something that might awnser this but couldn't dig anything up... A newbie question probably to you guys but here goes because I'm no to smart here. Basicaly are carbs all the same no matter where they come from? I mean is there a differance betwen carbs from vegtables,fruits, legums ect and carbs from grains (like whole wheat pasta, brown rice/white rice ect)? I know this sounds dumb but would getting say 500 grams of carbs from broccoli essentially be the same as 500 grams of carbs from a grain source like a bowl of rice or is there a differance between those sources? I know about things like G.I. index levels and thats one differance between the 2 and the veggies would be less calories but is it basically all the same carbs in the end? Thanks.
