I know it varies for everyone, but Im curious as to the range of low carbers in general...so what is your total (or net if that is what you track) daily carb intake?

I have been at a total carb intake of about 50g/day and will be slowly upping it to see what I can tolerate. Guessing it will max out ~120g, but wondering if anyone else has to use a much lower to maintain?

Expecting my cals to be ~1800/day and I workout 3-5 times a week.

Hi! I do Belly Fat Cure which is 6 servings of <20g carbs a day and I plan to eat this way forever since it works for me and is flexible.

So, if I max my carbs out each day (which I tend to do) it is about 120g carbs.

Do what works for you! The other thing about my carbs is that I only eat 15g sugar a day and I try to get more than 20 grams of fiber.

Let me know how it goes for you!

I aim for around 100 carbs per day. divided into 5-6 meals.
