    Plant based question. Please help

    So I have started on a plant based meal plan. I actually enjoy it. Don't get me wrong I so love me some chicken and steak and I will occasionally have chicken or tuna once a week or twice.

    My question is I am on a caloric deficit of 1800 and I am trying to limit my carb intake, but if I just mostly eat all kinds of beans and some brown rice I hit 200 grams for carbs quickly, is that many carbs bad or is it because they are Complex carbs.

    But for protien it ranges around 160 so I would have to top it off with a shake. And thata fine with me.

    I guess I'm just worried that I am taking in to many carbs on this plan.

    I do about 15-20 min cardio everyday. And I lift 3-4 times a week full body.

    Why would it be to many carbs? As long as you can still get the protein and fat you need

    Yep, hit protein and fat MINIMUMS and them fill the rest in as you want. I normally hit about 350 carbs.

    Carbohydrates are not inherently "bad." If you want to engage in a low carb or keto diet then do that. Otherwise, figure out some macros and find what works best. Adjust as necessary.

    it will take longer than that to lose the 55 lbs. post a pic of yourself shirtless for a better idea of how you should be approaching things as far as diet and training

    I can’t believe it’s 2020 and people still think carbs are ‘bad’
    The power of carbs compels me!

    you have a ways to go. Your fatloss will be predominantly from diet. The weights will help maintain muscle you already have. I wouldn’t worry so much about carbs as your overall weekly calories will determine your fatloss amounts. Most likely carbs WILL be on the lower side since your protein and to a lesser extent your calories from fat will take priority. I’d say you have a 6 month project on your hands to get the fat off.
