How Many Carbohydrates Can You Eat and Still Be Low Carb?

Where's the Line Between
Very Low Carb and Low Carb
Low Carb and Moderate Carb
Do you Know?
Most of the low-carb community eat at 20 to 35 net carbohydrates per day.

The current theory about ketosis is that it takes 50 grams, or less, for most people to maintain that metabolic state.

You’d think that asking, “How low is low carb?” would be rather silly. Wouldn’t the obvious answer be less than 50 carbohydrates per day?

Well, maybe.

But, maybe not. How low is low carb exactly?

Like almost anything, it all depends on which low-carb expert you ask, and how much weight you place on their theory and belief. It wasn’t very long ago that the same people who are currently trying to talk us into converting to a low protein, low carb, high-fat lifestyle (for our own good, of course) were preaching something very different.
