    Smile What's the LIMIT on carbs for a typical Keto-Diet?

    I understand there are variations, but on low-carb days (if one cycles it), how many carbs should be allowed?

    Is it more important to factor in the GRAMS of carbs or PERCENTAGE?
    I am unsure. I am further boggled down in work due to finals, so please no unnecessary flaming, since I am pressed on time and won't search for it.

    Thanks a bunch.

    I shoot for 25g or less per day. A few lucky people claim to eat 100g a day and remain in ketosis, but I think they're a tiny minority. I wouldn't be surprised if you could do 50g or 60g a day and be okay, but you should start low and increase gradually until you find your limit.

    Even then, 50g all at once from pure sugar is going to have a much different effect than 50g spread out over the whole day from things like cheese, nuts, and green vegetables.

    It varies for everyone. Someone young, healthy and ripped can eat a hell of a lot more carbs than someone who's older and with a lot of bodyfat. The more exercise you do, the more you can eat. If you are breastfeeding or pregnant, you can eat more.

    Start with 5% of cals, and work from there. Don't obsess over it, it's not a big deal if you go over one day.
    65% fat, 30% protein, 5% carbs = keto.

    Eileen got me into keto when i wanted to lose 40 pounds (which i did on keto in 2 months)

    what I did was eat less than 15grams of carbs a day.

    This is a kinda related question. During the first two weeks of induction is it ok to take in say 20g carbs in your PWO shake or should you avoid PWO carbs untill after two weeks?

    20g of carbs pre-workout are going to be used up so quickly, it shouldn't affect you negatively.

    Lightbulb I'm glad you said that......

    I just purchased some Size-On Creatine and I love the stuff, but noticed that 1 serving has 26.3 net grams of carbs. Probly from the 14.5 g of sugars.

    I really like using the stuff and considered getting off keto just to take it.

    My short-term solution has been to continue to do keto, but do moderately intense cardio for 30 minutes, 6 days per week. I take the size on approximately 3 1/2 days per week, as I utilize a 3 day split and only take it during weight training sessions.........

    so how do you guys stay around 15-20g carbs? I can't imagine eating the protein I eat without taking my ON Shakes and each shake is 4g carbs...should I only be counting the sugars? I'll take at least 4 shakes/day and each servings of my cashews/almonds are around 6g carbs/oz. How the hell do you manage to stay at 15g without eating pure eggs/bacon or chicken/olive oil?

    Count all carbs except fiber.

    Pre/Post WO carbs do not go towards your 20 grams per day, but you still count the calories.

    well here are my macros:

    Meal 1:
    4x Eggs - 24F/0C/24P
    4x Bacon - 8F/0C/8P

    Meal 2:
    Shake - 1F/4C/24P
    1oz Nuts(Cashew/Almond mix) - 16F/6C/6P

    Meal 3:PreWO
    2x Shake - 2F/8C/48P
    1oz Nuts(Cashew/Almond mix) - 16F/6C/6P

    Meal 4:PostWO
    2x Shake - 2F/8C/48P
    1oz Nuts(Cashew/Almond mix) - 16F/6C/6P

    Meal 5:
    8-10oz Meat - 20F/0C/80P
    3-4oz Cheese - 24F/3C/18P
    1Tbs Oil - 13F/0C/0P

    Meal 6:
    1 Cup Cottage Cheese - 2F/4C/20P
    X1oz Nuts(Cashew/Almond mix) - 16F/6C/6P
    6g Fish Oil throughout the day - 6F/0C/0F
    166F/55C/294P



    so taking a look at my macros, I need to reduce protein? or just not include the 2F/8C/96P that I'm consuming pre/postWO in my macro plan...which would look like this:

    164F/47C/198P

    So if I do dismiss my Pre/PostWO numbers, should I replace those with real meals? What are some foods I can cut/add to increase the fat while decreasing the protein/carbs....or do I just need to start shooting oils

    The only carbs I eat are from veg. I keep it below 15g a day even though someone with my body type and activity level can eat a lot more. I dont care about Ketosis, I just want to avoid the poison so to speak.
