  • Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, Founder of and Doctor of Natural Medicine. What I want

  • to answer today is one of those common questions I get on Facebook and on my online page, and

  • that is, how many carbohydrates should you eat per day?

  • We know that there are a lot of different diets out there, some saying go completely

  • carb free like the ketogenic diet, and some saying, hey, you need to be eating more carbs

  • and low fat, and I want to answer that question here.

  • Let me say this, it really depends on your health goals and how many carbs you should

  • eat per day, and it really depends on your body type. But for most people, let's say

  • you're consuming 1600 calories or 2000 calories a day, is you want carbohydrates to typically

  • be about 40% of your overall intake of calories.

  • And again, that really depends on the person, and that's for an active person. If you're

  • active, about 40% of your calories should come from carbs, another 30% protein, another

  • 30% fat in general. Again, that does depend.

  • For some people, you may consume a lot higher fat diet if your goal is to become a fat burner.

  • For some people, they may need more protein as well, if you're really trying to pack on

  • some muscle.

  • In general, the amount of carbs you should consume per day is probably going to be in

  • between 500 and 800 calories per day from carbohydrates, and that's going to typically

  • be about 150 to 200 grams of carbohydrates per day is what you should be eating.

  • So, 200 is an upper amount, actually even as low as 120, may be ideal. So when you're

  • counting your carbohydrates, 120 to 200 for most people is ideal when it comes to burning

  • fat and just overall general health.

  • So let me remind you of this, carbohydrates are not evil. There're a lot of people out

  • there today out there as saying carbs are bad. You know we've had things like the Atkins

  • Diet and South Beach diet and Paleo Diet and ketogenic diet today where some of them have

  • sort of painted carbohydrates in a bad light.

  • Listen, you need carbohydrates for energy, it's important for cellular function, but

  • the truth is, most people are getting way too many carbohydrates in their diet per day.

  • Let me give you something in perspective as well.

  • You know, blueberries are an amazing super food. They have antioxidant, they have carbohydrates,

  • they have fiber, they have vitamins and minerals, but if I take blueberries and I just extract

  • the sugar out of it and you just have fructose, well that sugar by itself without the fiber,

  • without the antioxidants, without the minerals, is now toxic to your body.

  • So sugar and carbohydrates have gotten a bad rap for that reason, because so many of the

  • foods we have today, they're isolated compounds that are not real foods. Again, fructose by

  • itself, sugar, it's not a real food. Its toxic to your system versus blueberries or sourdough

  • bread or something else along those lines are real food. Even raw honey, those are foods.

  • They have co-factors or nutrients with them that support absorbability and digestibility.

  • It's a similar thing with white rice versus brown rice. Well how many carbs should you

  • consume per day? Well, it depends on the form you're getting them in.

  • Brown rice you can actually eat a little bit of a bigger serving because there is fiber

  • there that's going to slow the absorption of those carbohydrates turning into sugar,

  • versus white rice will turn into sugar almost immediately.

  • So, I think you see my point here. But in general, to answer your question, how many

  • carbohydrates should you consume per day? For most people, in between 120 and 200 grams

  • per day, and I would say the ideal amount for most people is about 150 grams total of

  • carbohydrates per day.

  • But again, that really depends on your activity level, it depends on your body type and goals,

  • but one of the best things you can do is take time and make a food diary. Write down for

  • three to seven days what you're eating on a daily basis.

  • Then really start monitoring your overall fat, carbon and protein intake, and what you're

  • eating in terms of food, and then see how your body does.

  • If your goal was weight loss, then really look at what you're eating, weigh yourself,

  • or test your body fat. Again, see where you're at.

  • I want to mention this is well; my overall philosophy isn't just about quantity. It's

  • not about counting carbohydrates, it's not about counting fat and protein, it's not about

  • quantity, it's about the quality of the food you're eating.

  • I would actually challenge you rather than counting carbohydrates, instead count the

  • quality of nutrients you're eating. Get more grass fed animal products, get more fruits,

  • get more vegetables, get more sprouted nuts and seeds like Chia seeds, consume more coconut

  • products. But just eat real food.

  • I think you'll see, if you just start eating real food in these five categories, wild caught

  • meats, fruits, vegetables, sprouted nuts and seeds and beans, and then raw fermented dairy

  • products like the yogurt and raw cheeses, things like kefir and yogurt.

  • If you really stick to those five food groups, you are going to burn fat fast, your body

  • is going to heal, and I think you'll see that that's a better strategy than overall counting

  • carbohydrates.
