I’m convinced that my weight woes are largely due to carbohydrates. My cousin who is training me, and who is a big crossfit proponent, also believes that low-carb is the way to go. I’ve been wanting to try it, but it is HARD to cut out carbs. Do you even know how many foods have carbs?! One Lean Cuisine has over 50!
So I wanted to know how many carbs I should try to eat each day, because obviously you should still eat vegetables and a small amount of complex (whole wheat) carbs. I searched online and found the following information from this site:
I found this fascinating. I’m not sure how many carbs I was previously consuming each day, but I’m sure it was in the “weight gain” category! So now I’m shooting for around 75 grams a day. I don’t expect to be under 25 in any given day, but I want to be under 100, so I thought 75 would be a good goal. I think I’ll shoot for an under 50 day once or twice a week.
I downloaded a great app that tracks carbs and calories- Carb Master.
Hopefully I can combine a low-carb diet with my April Challenge to lose some weight before my birthday in May!
