Default Pumpkin clarification

In my refeed program, it says under the heading 'Carbohydrate' the words 'butternut' and then listed a little later in the same category, 'pumpkin'.

I thought that butternut is a variety of pumpkin. Or does the second heading mean any type of pumpkin?

Help!

Butternut is a squash....and a higher carb content so that is why it is listed in the carb group...it is a sweeter tasting squash and grouped in like pumpkin

Thanks Patti.

So what you call 'butternut' is what I call 'yellow squash'? is that right?

Cheers
Jackie

Jackie,
No butternut is an orange squash totally different from yellow.......your yellow is called summer or crookneck similiar to zucchinni which are both permitted on my plan....it is butternut that is not permitted until carbs are re-introduced at re-feed and after

Thanks Patti, got it now. Butternut squash is what I call butternut pumpkin (it looks and tastes more like a pumpkin and is sold in the same section as the pumpkin in my fruit/veg shop around the corner). Well, I am VERY happy, I can have it as a carb in refeed. Yepee!
