I popped over to daily apple and it seems weight loss falls in 50-100 g of carbs.
Maintenance falls in 100-150.
Above that is "weight gain territory."
Below 50 is ketosis, not rec'ed for more than a day or two.
So I looked up what a typical recommended dietary amount of carbs was, and found a calculator for the 60 percent of your calories "rule."
I entered various daily calorie amounts, starting with 1200 (180 g of carbs), and dropping to 650 (97 g of carbs.)
Makes one appreciate the difference in approach.
So I then looked up my own tracker, still vegetarian. 116 g. That's with a serving of brown rice, lentils and tofu as the main contributors to carbs. Oh, and a banana.
suddenly, this looks quite do-able without meat!
