    I'm three weeks in and aiming for weight loss at the moment.
    I'm trying to get an idea of what 50-100g of carbs actually looks like in terms of a few fruits/veggies.

    Can some of you guys help me out here.

    I think once i've got a few real world examples i can build a picture in my head for my day to day needs

    Many thanks

    Go use paleotrack.com and just play with menu ideas.
    50-100g of vegetable carbs is a whole lot, but, fruit adds up quickly.

    Just plug in your food intake in nutrition log ie. my fitnesspal and it tells you how much carbs there are in a serving. To answer your question certain fruits and veggies contain higher carbs than others. Bananas would be a higher carb fruit and sweet potato as well.

    Here's one day of carb content for me last week when I ate about 45g of carbs:

    5 eggs: 2.2g carbs
    300 grams chicken: 6.5g carbs
    half a head of cauliflower: 20.9g carbs
    1 cup shredded lettuce: 1g carbs
    quarter of an onion: 6.2g carbs
    medium zucchini: 7.5g carbs
    crio bru: 1.4g carbs

    thanks guys, yeah i'm aware of the various macro counter websites i just though some of you would have some example sets of food that you've consumed and counted already (as per palebluedots)

    palebluedots, thanks that's great

    Here's a day I had 36g carbs. Of all the food I ate, these were the only items that had any carbs in them:

    Greek salad (lettuce, microscopic dose of feta cheese, olives, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions)
    Garnet yam (0.2 of a medium yam, in other words, less than a quarter or about two or three small slices.)
    1/2 avocado
    Another salad that probably had lettuce, red peppers, onions, tomatoes and whatever else on it.

    Here's a day where I had 46g carbs. These were the carby foods:
    1 avocado
    Spoonful of kefir cheese
    lettuce
    basil pesto (has pistachios)
    dark chocolate (one "row" in a large bar)
    One beer
    1/2 tomato

    Yes, I realize that when I say "carby foods" none of these are truly very carby at all.
