Yea, broccoli and many healthy green vegetables contain sugars, or at least the back of the food label says so. Always confuses me.
Anyway, if broccoli is what you're eating, then don't worry about it. Keep the total carbs below 20-30g, but don't try to eat things that just have sugars added. Post processed crap is out in this diet. For example, you can't have 1/2 a serving of ice cream or soda, even if the total carbs for the day is below 20g.You cannot make a man by standing a sheep on its hind legs. But by standing a flock of sheep in that position you can make a crowd of men.

10-15 grams of sugar spread over 5 meals would be fine..I usually average about 2 grams of sugar per meal from either salad dressing, sausage, bacon, etc.
You have to realize that such a small amount of sugar will have little effect on insulin levels when eaten with a meal full of fat/protein. Just keep the amount toa relative minimum and try and get most of your foods from natural sources if possible.
