Click HERE to Calculate Your Nutrient Balance Based on Your Carbohydrate Intake

The books make it sound easy. Cut the carbs, eat "luxuriously" and watch the weight drop off. No need to count anything but grams of carbs. Sounds too good to be true, and for most of us, it is.

Most people will lose a lot of weight in the first few weeks of a low carb diet Some of this weight is water released as we burn through our reserves of glycogen, the storage form of carbohydrate. Many will lose steadily for the next three or four months. But after that, stalls are common, because despite what you might have read elsewhere, calories count, no matter how many grams of carbs you eat. Depending on how many grams of carbs you are eating, how much fat you eat may count too.

Our Nutritional Calculator Has Been Totally Redesigned!

Here's what's new:
  • The calculator now allows you to enter any amount of carbohydrate.
  • If you are eating more than 100 grams of carbohydrate the calculator will adjust down the amount of fat it recommends you eat.
  • Protein calculations analyze your carbohydrate intake and assume that if you are eating 80 grams of carbohydrate your brain is not replacing glucose with ketones.
  • We've addressed the problem of very heavy people getting inaccurate protein recommendations by adding a feature that lets you enter your body fat percentage. With this, we can calculate your protein requirement based only on your lean body mass.
  • Older people and thinner people may also find that entering their body fat percentage gives a better protein estimate.
  • The calculator will warn you when you are enter a carbohydrate level that is too high to be compatible with a safe protein intake. If you are eating a large amount of carbs, this will keep you from cutting calories in a way that isn't healthy.

You'll find a long discussion of the assumptions underlying these new recommendations on the page that displays your results. The calculations used here are in line with the information you'll read about the nutrient intakes that provide the greatest success for long-term low carb dieters. in Jenny Ruhl's book, Diet 101:The Truth About Low Carb Diets.
