Free carbs (Hormonally inactive foods)...What are they?


Free carbohydrates (hormonally inactive foods) are also called fibrous carbs, non-active carbs, low glycemic carbs, etc. These are the carbohydrates that do not have the dramatic effect on blood sugar and insulin that active carbs do. They include any non- starchy vegetables. They can be eaten in any quantity, anytime, on any menu, including dinner--you don't really need to measure them unless you want to. Free carbs are great fillers, adding bulk to your diet, as well as satisfying that strong oral fixation we all have. Be careful not to confuse them with starchy vegetables, like beans, peas, lentils, corn, potatoes, and winter squashes. Starchy vegetables are not interchangeable with free carbs.
