How do I determine how many carbs I should take in every day? I'm not sure how to judge whether I've had too many or not enough.

I'm on an 1800 calorie diet and get 17 carb choices per day. Each carb choice is 15 grams, so 255 grams. 1700 calories would be 16 choices and so on. That was according to the dietician that I met with earlier in the week if that makes any sense?? Clear as mud? =)

what kind of diet are you on? that's really what determines the macronutrients you should be taking in. If you're just counting calories and trying to eat "less" than you used to, I would say that it doens't quite matter as much. I'm not saying it doesn't matter at all, but it might not be something you need to worry about.

It should be less than 200g on a normal calorie counting diet, & less than 130 on a low carb diet. Or if you're trying to get or stay in ketosis then less than 60g of net carb.

Carbs......Oh my!!!
Yeah, I thought I was doing OK on my fat grams until I took a look at my daily food intake for a week. Wow! I've been way over on fat grams which was why I was getting no where.
