A lot of my patients will ask me, “How many carbohydrates should you eat per day?” and I’m hear to answer your question. First, it depends on your health goals and your body type. However, if you’re an active person consuming 1600-2000 calories a day, you want carbohydrates to be about 40% of your overall intake of calories, 30% protein, and 30% fat. These numbers can fluctuate depending on if you’re trying to burn fat, build muscle, or just stay fueled. In general, the amount of carbs you should consume per day should be between 500-800 calories, which is 120-200g of carbohydrates.
A lot of people today are saying carbs are bad for you. However, carbohydrates are important for energy and cellular function. The reason they can be harmful is if you overload on carbohydrates, which is what a lot of people do today. I would encourage you to start a food diary for 3-7 days and write down what your eating on a daily basis. Then monitor your daily overall intake of fat, protein, and carbohydrates and see how your body does. Then, try adjusting these proportions based on what you’re trying to achieve. Try getting more grass-fed animal products, more fruits, more vegetables, more sprouted nuts and seeds, more coconut products, more raw fermented dairy products and overall real foods. By following these food groups, you will burn fat fast and heal your gut. If you would like to learn more about what foods to eat in a proper diet, check out my Healing Foods Diet here:
