Diane: Direct – How Many Carbs are Right for You?
In today's episode, I'm talking about carbs and how to determine the right number *FOR YOU* to eat in a day. This is one of those topics that I'm asked about all the time, so hopefully this vlog will help clear up some of the confusion!
1. Eat carbs according to your activity level and type of activity.
2. Eat carbs according to your body type and your body's response to them.
3. TRACK, TRACK, TRACK!
*Note that this video is not specifically part of the keto series, which will continue shortly. I'm doing some experimenting and testing I want to share about with you so stay tuned for those.
