Complex carbs include foods with nuts, seeds, unrefined whole wheat breads and starches as well as high fiber veggies.and omitting processed foods. I believe that is the ideal diet but you must realize that the carbs are carbs and they must be restricted to prevent too much insulin release and wt gain. That is the trick
have your physician refer you to a nutritionist to find out more details of a low glycemic index diet.
