Hi anne,

Thanks for your mail. Many people have the same kind of experience you have with carbohydrate food so they prefer not to start again. This is unfortunate because low-carb eating can do much for you if you are overweight. Not just temporarily, but long for your life.

People often think that eating carbohydrates means you no carbohydrates should eat more. That is not the case. Your body needs carbohydrates for fuel in order to function optimally.

Avoid fast carbohydrates

How many carbs per day?

Depending on what your goal is, you can determine how many grams of carbohydrates you want to eat every day. Every body is different so it depends on the person how much carbohydrate you need each day.

It is best to follow these guidelines when it comes to eating carbohydrates:

Never eat more than 300 grams of carbohydrates per day. This is very unhealthy.

A large part of the Dutch eat more than 300 grams of carbohydrates per day. This is because we are used to for breakfast and lunch and eat bread at dinner pasta, rice or potatoes.

Much of the population is convinced to eat healthy. They drink little soda and add to watch their diet. They regularly eat bread, rice, pasta, potatoes and gingerbread for example, or a granola bar as a snack.

These people think they are doing a good job when it comes to food. A large part is just a healthy BMI or a few kilos overweight.
