I may have missed this in a post somewhere, but roughly how many grams of carbs are best for you? It's tough to battle over low carb if we have different definitions of "low."

I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
