Anyone have a known carb of choice for carb cycling? Wheat, corn, rice, potato? Doesn't matter?

(After moving to paleo (with cheese), I've been using up existing stockpiles of non-compliant food (bread and grains) intermittently. I actually started doing this before I read about carb-cycling, and have kept it up. But I'll be out of refrigerated bread/rolls and stuff fairly soon.)

I thought sweet potatoes and yams were the same. What is the difference?

There is none. The sweet potatoes that my grocery store sells all come in boxes marked "Yams".

They are completely unrelated plants. However, it's not uncommon in the US for both names to be applied to the same starchy tubers. So you may go and buy a "yam" but actually be getting a sweet potato, or vice-versa.

I stand corrected.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweet_potato

It appears that the physical resemblance of the 2 vegetables caused the sweet potatoe to be incorrectly called yams.

Sweet potatoes are tasty in moderation, but I'd need something else in conjunction at least. Admittedly my first choice would probably be corn in corn chip form.

Not my first choice.

These are my carb recomendations after fibrous veg and fruit:

Legumes, sweet potatoes, squash & pumpkin, oatmeal, Red River cereal, barley, granola, trail mix, nuts, potatoes, brown rice, pasta.

Always go with the least processed foods and low glycemic index. Stay away from prepackaged foods, like corn chips, any refined flour, seed oil and sugar. Many people have probelms with wheat, soy and corn because we get way too much, so they're not on my list.

P.S. Chille should be in it's own food group.

You consider squash to be high-carb? I don't think I could eat more than 5 cups worth at a single sitting, and that'd only be 15g net carb according to http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts/vege ... cts/2748/2 - I've been including squash on a more regular basis.

As for corn, well specifically the one I'm thinking of doesn't seem overly "processed"
http://www.foodshouldtastegood.com/#/jalapeno/ but yea I'll try to go with more sweet potatoes. Man those jalapeno chips are so ridiculously delicious though - it's not even funny.

I meant winter squash. I treat summer squash like a cucumber or zucini. Winter squash and pumpkin have significant carbs, about 1/2 of a sweet potato.
