Where do you get your carbs
I've been weight lifting on and off for years, but never tracked my food. Now I know why I didn't get good results. So far, my fat tends to be high, and my carbs low (i'm trying for a 20%/40%/40% split).

What do you eat to get good and solid carbs that don't add too much to your fat intake?

Pasta, Rice, Oatmeal are my staple carbs.

i eat some white rice with steamed chicken and boiled spinach .... and i think it's really good for health ... pasta and oatmeal also best for carb ...

wheat is bad for you
it has been discovered recently that wheat containing products can spike your blood sugars faster and higher than a candy bar, not to mention the wheat glutens unhealthy affects to the digestive system, cardiovascular system, and brain

so I prefer potatoes Glycemic Index

and sweet potatoes Glycemic Index

Why does no one ever say grape nuts? Delicious and nutritious.

If you are hard training bodybuilder, a diet rich in complex carbs is good. Carbs such as potatoes, whole grain breads, oatmeal, pasta and brown rice.
