Easy Ways to Add Carbs to Your Diet

If you’re looking for quick and easy ways to add some carbohydrates to your nutrition, you’ve come to the right place. Whether you’re looking for low-volume or high-volume adds, quick-to-digest options, carbs to meet your refeed day macros, high-fiber choices or carbs from whole-food sources, we’ve got you covered.

Most of the carbohydrate sources listed in the following charts will have a limited amount of protein or fat, making it easier to add any of these foods to your daily lineup without adding too many of the other macros. Or, if you’re still having trouble understanding how to add or choose the right carb option, you can always turn to ask your WAG coach.

Quick tip: If your nutrition is focused on minimizing carbs, you can flip the switch and use these charts as a reminder on what foods to pass on for now (low volume) or what foods to include for high fiber content (high volume).

The following foods limit your fat and protein intake, yet allow larger portions and volume for the number of carbohydrates you’ll consume. Many of these foods are high in water content and fiber, which adds to their volume.

Now that you can add carbs to your daily macro lineup like a pro, check out these easy ways to add protein to your diet.
