i'm craving and hunger free anywhere between 40 and 100 g net per day.
i have better focus, cognition, energy and mood stability at the low end.
i feel amazing at 40 g net, so i've never felt motivated to try going lower.
i might, however, out of curiosity one day, if i hang around with LC friends long enough.

I am low, low, low carb. I'd estimate approximately 10-15 but that may be an overestimation.

I'm back after too much time away from this WOL. Once thru induction, I add berries and nuts and nut butter. I also eat yo cheese daily. I have no idea where this puts me in terms of carbs but I would guess under 40.

I just started induction. Will be keeping it under 20 grams a day and clean. Yesterday I actually only ate 9 carbs, but 2800 calories :O

I am working on my food tracker and seeing where I could shave off some carbs. One place is eat a bit more raw veggies in place of some cooked veggies: that woul bring ny carb count down to a net 60 but it increase my fibers to 35. It's not all bad!

I do the same thing and just eat foods that are naturally low in carbs.

green veggies (not peas)
berries occasionally and in small amounts
nuts (limited amounts)

Very very occasionally, I have a small bit of popcorn or a few bites of an apple (I share it with someone else in the house) and I always have protein with these two things, such as a bit of cheese or peanut butter.

I have also added some low carb yogurt here and there, but it is very low in carbs. I would say I average between 20-30 carbs a day right now on most days.
