Congrats man, you are on the path. Here are some desirable carbs:
apple, asparagus, broccoli, cantaloupe, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, grapefruit, grapes, green pepper, kidney beans, lettuce, mushrooms, oatmeal, onion, orange, peach, pear, peas, spinach, string beans, tomato.
Bagel, banana, bread, carrots, cereal, corn, granola, muffin, pasta, popcorn, potato, raisins (run away from these!, 115 grams carbs per cup), rice, rice cakes, rolls, tortilla.
The "desirable" ones are fiber rich that don't effect blood sugar levels as quickly, or as much, as less desirable list.
The list comes from the "Complete Book Of Swimming" and is based on the "Zone Diet" I believe.
