Two days ago, I did hummus, for my wife and me. It was 200g of chickpeas per person (plus olive oil, etc.). The next day I had gone up by 800g. In the next two days, I have eaten normally (no additional carbs) and I have gone down 900g (300g the first day, 600g the second day).
So, carbs from chickpeas are also bad for me.
Equally, I have been trying several brands of protein bars. My initial criterion was to get as few sugars as possible. But I was not looking at total carbs. The experience is that the bars which are high in carbs (31g per 100g; 19g in polyols, 2.5g in sugar) lead me to higher levels of hunger, throughout the day. Instead, bars which are lower in carbs (about 16g per 100g, 15g in polyols, less than 1g in sugar) do not lead to higher levels of hunger.
I do not know the real issue, but I assume that polyols are not the culprit, but “the rest” of carbs, since the bars which are high in carbs have 12g of non-polyol carbs, and the bars which are low in carbs, they have only 1g of non-polyoil carbs. But this is only a hypothesis, I am not sure 100%.
So, to summarize, it seems I am quite sensitive to more types of carbs than sugars. Of course, there are some carbs which are great to me, since in fact, most of the food I eat is in the form of vegetables, which create zero problems to me.
Is there a finer distinction in carbs, not only sugars, but also another type of carbs which is not sugar, but not vegetable-carbs, either?
