Personal Carbohydrate Tolerance – Beans and Legumes

Beans and lentils contain protein, but they also are high in carbohydrate content. Depending on your personal carbohydrate tolerance, you may be able to introduce some beans and lentils into your diet once you have adapted to a lower carbohydrate protocol and gained better blood glucose control. It’s best to keep your carbohydrate intake very low until your body adapts and then you can later experiment with adding foods like berries and a small amount of lentils or beans into your diet and tracking your blood sugar response to find your personal carbohydrate tolerance.
