If you are going to go the low carb route of weight loss, what is the recommended number of carbs a day?Answer Question

The usual low carbohydrate range is 20 to 50 grams daily. The answer varies according to levels of activity. Determine how strict you need to be; the best way is to experiment and discover what amount works well for you as an individual.
From your 20 to 50 grams daily, get your carbohydrates from natural sources such as (preferably organic) non-starchy vegetables and low-carb fruits such as berries. There is no minimum daily requirement for carbohydrates in order to flourish physically, but they do have many beneficial phytochemicals and fiber, so eating some is fine (as long as they are unprocessed) and within your allowance.
