Yea, broc**** and many healthy green vegetables contain sugars, or at least the back of the food label says so. Always confuses me.
Anyway, if broc**** 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.
