I'm VLC baby! 0 - 50gs carbs
50gs - 150gs: Mark's cut off point for normal folk.
150gs - 300gs.
More than 300gs. (Are your sources still real foods?)
Around 300g, mostly from fruit and sweet potatoes. I don't excersise that much - 1 hour a week without equipment.
VLC for now with one day of carb refeed (definitely not an excuse for a binge, just a day where I eat more clean carbs) per week. I'm trying it for a while to see how I feel.
I don't really have a strong opinion of how many carbs other people should eat for optimal health though.
I am between 130 and maybe 200 g of carbs. I love fruit and tubers, and tried a few times to drop them, and in the end, yeah, I am one of those having a hard time reducing carbs to 50-75 g, and even harder time staying under 30 g. Can't ever understand how people find it so easy. So, I am above Mark's recommended range, so I call myself Paleo, rather than Primal.
According to Practical Paleo my activity level places me at about 50-75 g carbs. I am not athletically training, but I lift and do a couple of 30 min cardio sessions a week, one MA class recently (yay!) and walk, garden, what have you for play. But I just feel unhappy and have to count and concentrate to stay that low. And in the end, I always break down and have that extra apple or whatever, so I figured, to heck with the perfect range. It's not like VLC gave me a perfect body anyhow.

Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

My story: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/i-now...#axzz2MzPtxo00
My days revolve around 50 grams, most of the times less than that. I do a conscious effort to go up to 75 grand for one or two days a week. I eat no grains, no sugar or honey etc, no potatoes or rice, and I find fruit very sweet. If I do decide to stay away from nightshades (which I am thinking but have not decided yet) I will have to depend on dark chocolate for my carbs. .
