So how come our "diabetes twinship" didn't extend to the carb/weight relationship too, Maurie? Geeesh.
I guess we're only fraternal...
Oh that must be it!
About 100g, with an increasing amount at each meal of the day.
I'm not usually very hungry until dinner, making the total energy intake resonably low.
I eat 25-40g / day. Previously ~300-500. Haven't raised fat or protein intake substantially. I dropped a little over 10lbs over 1.5 years.
Do you not struggle with low energy on only 25 grams a day, I would love to get my carbs down that low.
I usually get about between 50g-120g depending on activity levels. I am 95kg and about 14% body fat.
I also get 250g of protein a day.. Lots of lean meat, nuts, fish..
I was working out two hours a day, doing intense interval training on about 80g of carbs a day, but after 8 weeks I was feeling very weak,lethargic and had no energy.
I have no upped carbs a bit and do a carb load every 10 days and I have much more energy.
I don't seem to be able to lift heavy weights, do sprint training etc without carbs in my diet! HbA1c has increased a bit 0.5% but I feel so much fitter and healthier.
20-30 per day. I find it a slippery slope for me when I eat more, as I tend to crave more and over eat.
Anything from 120-200g on a normal day (but I do calorie count those as well). Although on a ride I can nail a further 200-260g. I can't work out really how it's possible to only eat 20g or so a day? love to know though :)
Agreed I don't see how it is possible, even if you are having veggies with every meal that adds up quickly enough!
Sure it is, but it mustn't be easy!
I average about 100, but if I were trying to lose weight, I'd drop it to between 50 and 75. Not ready to go true low carb just yet.
