Can you let me know how many grams of carbs do you try to eat a day?

Ideally...: The goal is as few grams as possible, since carbs are not essential for life. Shoot for 50-60 grams per day! But the fewer the better. Protein and fat are essential for human life! The body will turn these to sugar as needed!

I am an endomporph is 50 to 100 grams of carbs per day enough to give me energy for my boxing workouts?

I am an endomporph is 50 to 100 grams of carbs per day enough to give me energy for my boxing workouts?

Only If...: You eat the majority of those carbs about 45 min-1 hour prior to your workout. Even still, you will be very tired at the end of the workout. If you are an endomorph, why do you restrict your carb intake to such low levels, are you trying to make weight or something? If not, increase them, until you feel like you have enough energy to be at your full potential while performing your workout.

If been over weight all of my life. Just started eating low carbs, trying to keep my carbs under 60 grams a day with one cheat day a week. Healthy?

Healthy diet: Eat a healthy well-balanced diet, 3 meals without snacks. Caloric restriction if you need to lose weight. There's no magic here. Find an eating plan you can follow the rest of your life, not a short-term diet. Check w/your registered dietitian. Don't try to overly restrict or supplement fat, carbohydrate or protein. Eat each in a sane and balanced amount.

How many grams of carbs per day for a type! 2! diabetic on insulin?

How many grams of carbs per day for a type! 2! diabetic on insulin?

Less: You will find the fewer carbs a day, the less Insulin you require. What matters more is that you are using enough Insulin to maintain very good control of sugars. You should also be consistent with carbs. Be realistic, don't eat nothing and be miserable, but it is also dangerous to eat too much then too little carbs which causes high highs and low lows. Try to eat consistent amount.

On a 2000 calories a day low carb diet how many grams of carbs should I aim for?

On a 2000 calories a day low carb diet how many grams of carbs should I aim for?

Depends on type: A low carb diet might have 5-10% of calories as carbs. I am not big of counting calories but the biggest problem I have with your question is not all carbs are created equal- mimimize sugars/starches/simple carbs but complex carbs in veggies, beans, nuts and low-glycemic fruits do not need to be avoided.

If there is 4 calories in 1 gram of carb then dose that mean if I eat 100g of carbs a day I need to burn 400 calories before I start burning fat?

If there is 4 calories in 1 gram of carb then dose that mean if I eat 100g of carbs a day I need to burn 400 calories before I start burning fat?

No, life is not...: The answer is no. Life is not black and white, but rather an infinite number of shades of grey (or gray). See, even the spelling of grey (or gray) is not in black and white. Life's biological processes are all happening at the same time, so carbs / proteins / fats are all being metabolized in the body while a person is alive, but the rates or amounts of each type of "fuel" metabolism differ.

I am a boxer and weigh 76 kg I am trying to lose weight so I am only having 100 grams of carbs per day is this enough carbs for my boxing workouts?

May be low: 100-150 grams is good for the average active person but you may need more. Pay attention to your energy levels. You can also check your urine with keto strips. When you run out of carbs you start burning fat and that shows up in your urine.

Taking a bit of carbs about 50 or 60 grams a day can cause u to slow down weight loss? And is it good to loose about 1 kg in 6 days? Is it good speed

Taking a bit of carbs about 50 or 60 grams a day can cause u to slow down weight loss? And is it good to loose about 1 kg in 6 days? Is it good speed

Actually, 50 to 60: Grams of carbs daily is already pretty low. The problem with going too low on carbs is it makes a diet really hard to stick to and you can feel fatigued/brain fog with too few calories and carbs. A good formula is: calories=12X body weight in lbs; protein=1 gm/lb; carbs=0.9-1.25 gm/lb; fat=the remainder of calories. 1 kg/2 lbs per week is a little fast. Best to go at pace you can maintain!!

Probably more: There are so many diets out there today. Low carb, no carb, low fat, high fat, on and on. 50 grams of carbs is only 200 calories, so you are leaving 1300 cal for protein and fat. I think that is excessive. I tell my patients a balanced dies with lean protein and lower glycemic carbs like brown rice, sweet potatoes and quinoa. Fat - mono saturated like olive or nut oils at about 20-25% of cals.

Only Part of Diet: Carbs are only a part of a balanced diet. You need some fat and protein. You need about 24 calories per kilogram oweight you are maintaining. Those calories need to be divided up between complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and protein (40-60%/20-30%/20-30%).
