    (from nutrition edu, id imagine you want to hit each group)
    Carbohydrates:

    o Prioritize vegetables which contain fibrous carbs (since they have a high nutrient density and a low caloric density, they can almost be eaten freely) such as
    Green Leafy Lettuce (Green Leaf, Red, Leaf, Romaine)
    Broccoli
    Asparagus
    String Beans
    Okra
    Spinach
    Bell Peppers
    Brussel Sprouts
    Cauliflower
    Cabbage
    Celery
    Cucumber
    Eggplant
    Green or Red Pepper
    Onions
    Pumpkin
    Garlic
    Tomatoes
    Zucchini
    o Fruits
    o Starchy veggies (sweet potatoes, yam, legumes)
    o Starchy products (Oat meal, oat bran, oat bran cereal, bran cereal, rice, whole-wheat pasta, 100% whole-grain products)
    o Oatmeal (stick to the non-flavored/non-sugar packed ones, just plain oatmeal, the kind of oatmeal doesn't really matter)
    o Legumes (they contain lots of protein but they usually are incomplete proteins and contain too much carb to be considered a protein source)
    o Basically, the less refined stuff. Strive to eat stuff that was available a couple of hundred years ago and try to eat fewer food that come in a box.

    That dude Derek from Team Scivation has a book, Bulking for Endomorphs, in it he recomends getting most of your your carbs from fruits n veggies (low gi carbs). If it's good for fatties then ... :big grin:
