How Many Carbs Should You Eat For Weight Loss

Cutting down on carbohydrates can help you lose weight fast. It can be easier than the strict portion control and counting calories, which many people find hard to maintain.

For decades, so-called health authorities have suggested that you eat a low-fat, low-calorie diet in order to lose weight. That might sound like a great diet plan, but people rarely stick to it.

    I seeing some people saying they try not to eat any carbs!
    Is there a benefit to this? If the goal is just to put your body into / stay in ketosis then does it matter what your carb intake is as long as you maintain a state of ketosis?
    I've been trying to keep my carbs to less than 20g / day, but when I was eating ~40g / day I was still able to stay in ketosis.
    Is there any advantage of me staying at less than 20g carbs if I can still stay in Ketosis ~ 40g's?

    On the other hand. If I go below 20 carbs I go into deep ketosis and can't eat enough. Above 20 I eat about 1500 cal below 20 I struggle to eat more then 700 cal. Before ketosis I'd eat 3-5k calories a day. Isn't ketosis grand :-)

    No. Some few people, mostly athletes, can eat up to about a 100g carbs. As long as you feel good, and are keeping calories in the range to lose if that's your goal, then consider yourself very fortunate. Wish I could have over 20g.
