When it comes to comparing which vegetable has fewer carbohydrates it is not necessarily an easy process since veggies come in all sizes and shapes. Serving size is important when determining how many carbs a meal really contains. For example: a 100-gram portion is either 1 cup chopped celery, or 4 extra-long spears of asparagus.

It is important to understand that not all carbohydrate has the same effect on your metabolism. Most plant carbohydrate is fiber, which has much less impact on blood sugars than natural sugars or some starches. For example, while kale has 10 grams of carbs in a 100-gram portion, the impact on blood sugars will not be the same as 10 grams of sugar in, say, a soda.
