    Some people work with net carbs, I personally count a carb as a carb.

    I use "a is a carb" because it keeps me honest.

    I wondered that myself, but decided to count a carb as a carb. This way, I for sure won't go over my limit.

    Just remembered this comment and realized I forgot to respond to it... if you click on "add exercise" under Cardio, you can search for "Strength training" and it'll allow you some calories for that workout.

    It'll appear as "Strength training (weight lifting, weight training)"

    2x protein would be 187 gm fat.

    44 gm carbs * 4 calories per carb = 176 calories from carbs
    94 * 4 = 376 calories from protein
    187 * 9 = 1683 calories from fat

    Add those up: 2235 is what you should shoot for for calories to reach 195 lbs.

    Macros will equal:

    Carbs: 44 gm, 7.9%
    Protein: 94 gm, 16.8%
    Fat: 187 gm, 75.3%

    Thank you Jenn so much. I greatly appreciate it.

    I do net carbs. I don't understand counting fiber against your ketosis? It's either not absorbed or turned into fatty acids... I would think counting fiber carbs would encourage eating refined carbs only like sugar. I wouldn't want to eat an avacado or veggies if I had to count fiber as sugar!

    TEE and Jenn Jenn, I just answered his question on the calorie goal he chose. Tee, if you can work your way down to the calories that Jenn set up for you based on the HSIS formula, you will likely lose weight faster. 70/25/5 is a good place to start no matter what calories you are going for.
