Default Carb amount

It's been 2 years since I've been on the diet and I've been told some thing have changed. What is the max amout of carbs you can take in during a day my coach says average 25 a day. It use to be 37 I thought before you get kicked out of ketosis

This will be interesting to follow. If you eat 3 of the higher non-restricted IP packets in a day you can be over 25gr of carbs in no time. Add the "natural" carbs in the 4C of non-restricted veggies we eat everyday and well you are way above. Last time on IP I micromanaged my carb input but not this time. Just skipping any restricted except for my weekly bowl of IP veg chili.

I try to stay between 25 and 28 net carbs. I have been up as high as 45 net carbs without coming out of ketosis, but everyone has a different threshold.

I JUST watched the official video from IP on this, this morning! Dr. W. (I'm not being overly chummy; I just honestly can't remember his whole last name ) says that the goal is to stay under 40 net grams of carbohydrates, in general. But individuals vary, so some people can have fewer than that, while others can have more.

"Net grams" refers to total grams of carbohydrate, minus grams of fiber.

Thank you Pish! This is a great graphic!!! Just to clarify, the carbs referred to would be net carbs--total minus fiber.

Everyone is different so it is an experiment for each of us to find our sweet spot. I am a new maintainer--just 4 weeks--and so far I've found that I can maintain if I keep within 70-100g or so of net carbs per day. However, I've just been walking and taking the occasional yoga class--if I was exercising more the net carbs for me to maintain would go up.

So far, I've been able to take off glycogen gain after fun meals/ days by reducing to 60 net carbs and maintaining my typical calorie intake.

I saw that video too, with the 40 carb limit mentioned. I never knew the maximum allowed, so was helpful.

BTW I hit my 50% goal today!!!

I did. I was at a plateau for almost a week...starting drinking a little more water, less coffee, and the scale started moving again!

I reach ketosis in Phase 3 with about 60-70ish net carbs/day. I wouldn't worry about how many carbs you're eating in Phase 1. Just follow the protocol and you'll be good!

I try to keep it under 30 net carbs and I still can't seem to be in ketosis. Carbs are certainly my enemy! What about sugar alcohols? I have had some Dr carbrite bars that have 1 to 2 net carbs. Any advice on those bars as an alternative to a restricted .
