That's not really how SB works-- that's more of an LC frame of mind. We minimize higher GI starches by eating plenty of vegetables. We look for protein to be in protein foods, not our carbohydrate sources. We get plenty of fiber by eating ample vegetables, fruits, and whole grains daily.
SB relies on good carbs, good fats, and lean proteins. We are looking to make sure our bodies get enough
of the carbohydrates that they need (rather than trying to minimize carbs), along with the fiber, vitamins, minerals, etc. that are present in those carb-rich foods. That includes eating normal carbohydrate sources as part of a balanced diet.
-- food lists, portion guidelines, etc.
