A Low-Carb Diet Is Completely Customizable
There is no one right way to go low-carb, which is part of the beauty of this approach. "Everyone could define low-carb differently," Dr. Webster said. A typical low-carb diet can range from 50 to 100 grams of net carbs per day, or you could try "a ketogenic diet, which is extremely low in carbohydrates and is sometimes used as a therapy for people with epilepsy who don't respond to medications." No matter where you start your low-carb journey, you can play with your numbers and adjust as needed until you find a range that allows you to feel good while still hitting your goals.
