So your saying I don't really need the carbs like fruits and veggies? If so what are so good carb foods?
I use ground beef quite a bit just because it's cheap. And if I find anything on sale I will grab it.

Cheese - I like to go the string cheese route, but really anything will do.

Eggs - the entire egg. Good nutrition.

And I'm not saying avoid carbs. It's just that so many times "healthy" in bodybuilding terms equals chicken, tuna, wild rice and broccoli. I would rather see a hardgainer eat more "sturdy" foods like milk and beef then over-rely on too much rice to add in calories.

Quinoa is an uber carb source. It's a tasteless grain like rice, and mixes well with salsa and pretty much anything. Most health food stores have it. Oatmeal, wild rice, etc. are good grains. Fruits - eat your heart out. Veggies...greens, sweet potatoes, the usual suspects.

I'm no dieting expert, in the sense that I never get OCD about it, but I do think a lot of healthier foods with natural fats are wrongly demonized - beef, whole milk, butter, etc. My personal opinion is that you're better off eating these foods then overdoing rice. The more I read about the ill health effects from grain carb sources, the less of them I try to eat. I don't cut them all out, but I am eating far less today then ever.
