It depends on what your goal is. Some people go as high as 80% carbs, people on Atkins are only doing 20 grams or fewer a day while in the induction phase.

I think people who are not setting out to do a low carb diet should start by setting a protein target based on their bodyweight and activity level, and then dividing the calories remaining between carbs and fat. Give it a week or two and then adjust it if you feel the need.

Hello all
Hamburgers are good with a bit of mustard or horseradish. You don't want to be eating the bun.

Atkins
I agree with berley1, think outside the box. I will eat tonights leftovers, ribs and broccoli for breaky next day... Agree with having a look at induction food list and eat whatever you want from that ...
