Like I said, this is years of research. I've been studying nutrition for 20 years and pharmacy for 12 years. I left the information here for people who don't have a plan and don't know anything about food tracking. It's a take it or leave it thing. Just trying to help.

It's the RDA for carbs. The only organ in the body that is fueled solely by carbs is the brain and that's the minimum brain fuel required. Also, new studies show low carb diets are more prone to causing dementia. So like I said for weight loss and for temporary use there are acceptable reason for a low carb diet but it's not optimal for health and the long term.

  • I went to the Mayo Clinic website and entered my info. 1950 calories seems like a lot to me. But I’ve been eating around 1300 on my weight loss journey. Love this info tho!

kimkat117

That's great that means you have a deficit of 650 calories a day plus your exercise! (The 1950 is what you would need to maintain your current weight)

I like Mayo Clinic too! I follow their diet and use their food journals.
