Comment: Lactose is a simple carb because its a disaccharide, 2 monosaccharides (glucose and galactose) joined together. I'm not convinced in any way shape or form about all this milk bashing.

just fyi, corn is a grain, a starchy carb. But anyway, get more fiber, it will bulk your poo and help with mushiness. As long as you are eating enough veggies (always better to get too much than not enough) if some escapes your digestion then no biggie. If it really bothers you can look into live cu...

The key to making your veggies work for you is variety. Don't pick 3-4 veggies you can handle and stick with them...
