- How many grams of carbs should I consume in a day?
- Q: I am trying to lose weight. I am 5’1″ and weigh 130lbs. I am consuming about 1600 calories per day. I am working out 5 times a week. I have been eating a lot of the Lean Cuisine meals. The ones that keep me satisfied longer are the pizza ones. ex. Spinach & Mushroom, Gourmet Mushroom. Anyway, I was reading the box and it has 340 calories and 41 grams of carbs. Is this too much?
- A: Unless you are on a low carb diet, about 60% of your calories from carbs is good. (20 – 30% fat and 10 – 20% protien.) With 1600 calories, that’s 960 calories worth of carbs. Carbs have 4 calories per gram, so that’s 240 grams of carbs daily. So, it sounds like the amount that you are eating is fine.
