Still trying. Staying the course and counting and logging. Still need to increase the fat intake and calories. Got the carbs right though and that is no easy feat for an old carb-aholic like me

I am new at this and finishing day 4 of no cheats but need to eat some more as my calorie count is way low today but my net carbs are 20 so I have some wiggle room there as well. Getting these macros down is not easy! Fat/protein/carbs.

We have other members that are that low too, Anything under 150gms of nets carbs a day is considered low carb. Good job!

My nutritionist and nurse told me to take in 45-90 grams of carbs per day because I want to lose weight. I average about 60 a day.

I’m new to counting carbs. Been keeping a count of around 30-45 carbs per meal (3 times a day) and an allowance of 15 carbs per snack (2 times a day).

I'm new and am learning. I'm glad to see the 125 or less. I've started using the nutrition tracker again and only took in 31 carbs yesterday! YES!

I cook for Gramma, so last night I made her a loaded hamburger. Bun, tomato, pickle, mustard, mayo, ketchup. I had my burger without a bun, ate a pickle and allowed mustard and ketchup. That's a huge accomplishment for me, since I'm one who used to drive through McD and order 2 doubles just for the comfort.............

I am really not "counting carbs".
I have followed lo-carb before,
so mostly know the first 20. I
really don't want to go that far
down because of my kidney
problems.

What I have been doing is checking
for ketones daily and keeping the
results to trace amounts. I hope to
not have to count really closely.

It depends on your plan. I do 125gms of net carbs or less. Anything below 150 is considered low carb by some experts but some say below 250 is. That is too many for most people. Atkins is 20. Protein Power 30. Keto is in that range up to 60 for some lucky individuals.

I'm just starting. My first 4 days I was around 25, but I'm bumping up a bit to between 50 & 75. I'm kind of wanting to moderate to a percentage, but working on meal plans that work with that - somewhere around 25% carbs, 35% protein, 40% fat. We'll see. If I see weight start moving - I'll stick with that.... lol
