Just curious, wondering how many grams of carbs you guys limit to. I've seen numbers anywhere from 20-100g for the typical keto dieter. But those are all from non-ED sites. So what do you guys limit yourselves to?

I try to stay under 30, and to only get my carbs from fruit.

Currently I'm trying to get as close to zero as possible. Usually I try to keep it at 5% of my daily intake. My absolute limit is 20g.

I'm more low carb than keto as I keep my protein pretty high but I max out at 50g of carbs with a daily intake of 1000-1200 so I'm not too sure what percentage that is. Maybe 20? Depending on what my Fibre is
I knew the percentages better when I was using cronometer

Keto is usually 30, 50g absolute max. 100g is just general low-carb.

Yeah but if you're doing the keto diet then it has .3g of net carbs. Maybe that's why they call it zero carb? I mean it's still not zero but maybe because it isn't a whole gram? Who knows.  ;)

I got the recipe from an MPA post and do it like a focaccia in a brownie-bakingtray, and I add a crapload of coconut oil/butter to it, sometimes some sesame seeds or sprinkle sunflower seeds on top. You can play around with coconut flour, almond flour, anything you like really. It's such a simple and versatile recipe.

my macros are set up for 20-30% carbs, 30-40% fats and 50-60% protein. Get most carbs from fruits/veggies than actual carb foods. But i do *for the most part) try to stay under 30% for carbs anything over I get super bloated and sick ... I have no gallbladder so my body can't digest properly haha SUCKS!

Try to keep it around 5% of my total intake and no more than 20g net (so total carb g minus fiber g)
