Q: How do you calculate your carbohydrate needs?
How do you calculate your daily carbohydrate needs? Different books say different things!
How can you not trust this face! Everything I know about nutrition I learned from Dr. Clyde Wilson. I learned how to build meals so that they are balanced well, and now I don’t have to think about it. Its second nature. I don’t count grams of carbohydrates or weigh my food. Essentially I eat between 2400 and 3000 calories a day and I follow the plate-as-a-pie principle: Half the pie is vegetables/fruit, 1/4 of the pie is starch/carbohydrate, and 1/4 of the pie is protein. Most of my snacks are carbohydrate-based with a little fat or protein to make it enter the blood stream a little more slowly (i.e. Peanut butter on sprouted grain toast).
