carb is te roblem. they are sugar but slow one and more than 100gr/day make you gain weight
food with high carbs:
bread about 50% of the weight
everything with flour about 50% of the weight
rice about 50% of the weight
pasta about 50% of the weight

potato about 25% of the weight
couscous about 20% of the weight
polenta about 20% of the weight

chicken meat about 10% of the weight
pork meat about 5% of the weight
beef 0%
fish 0%
egg 1%

the best fruit for low carb is watermelon
the worst is apple 50%

you can eat 100 gr of beef with 100g potato but dont add pasta or rice or bread, it will make you full and you only get 25gr of carbs, good dinner full all night.

try to have one meal a day or to not bpass over 100gr of crb a day,less than 50gr you will loose good amount of weight every day... Smile-

Wrong. Carbs are calories like any other calories. Calories are what matter. A surplus causes a gain, a deficit causes a loss. Simple.
Consume whatever foods you prefer, whenever you prefer to consume them, while ensuring nutrient sufficiency and meeting caloric goals.

Chicken has carbs. I did not really think so... Only if you add it.

I do not think the best low carb fruit is water melon. It has a large amount of carbs and little fiber. I would say that better ones are some berries and Asian pear and avocado

Not all carbs are sugars. In unprocessed foods, most carbs are starch and dietary fibre is technically a carb too, but you don't digest or absorb it.

Your figures are not correct. Apples are just under 20% carbs, bananas are more than 25% (I've just checked on this site). Every calorie counter I've seen shows chicken as having no carbs, no matter what source.Varying amount of fat depending on where the meat comes from, but no carbs.

I am not low-carb, but I am transitioning into a more plant-based diet so I just need to learn how to keep my carbs below 60 percent as though I were eating a standard diet. I wonder if anyone has suggestions?

Nuts and Seeds are dense and nutrient heavy. Chia seeds and flax seeds are especially good ones. Some veggies have less carbs. So focus more on veggies and less on fruits but avocado is very good Tofu is a good food with lots of protein... choose healthy fats. Cheeses are good if you eat those. Good luck Waffle!!!!

I found out that soy and nuts are helpful for balancing carbs while eating fewer animal products than I used to. I am not totally plant-based or even close yet though. I just eat fewer animal products than I used to, and less than many omnivores do for now. The transition is slow.

I'm with diablo 360x on this. I feel like all this macro nutrient counting is complicating a fart. Our bodies need carbs for general energy, fat for neural and brain health, protein for muscular support. Bottom line is your will lose weight if you commit to a calorie deficit every day.
