200 grams raw green gram = 125 grams of carbohydrates and 45 grams of protein.

Dietary fiber around 30 grams

125 grams of carbohydrates is not that much and pretty much under required carbohydrates intake.

But eating 125 grams of carbohydrates in one go can overload you with glucose. Let us calculate glycemic load of 200 grams of green gram.

Glycemic index = 40

Glycemic load (200 grams) = 40 * 110/100 = 44

Glycemic load above 20 is considered unhealthy. Split 200 grams green gram over a day rather than eating in a single go.
