Do You Keep Note of Carbs You are taking?

I see these days people are so health-conscious and it's good actually that they are keeping note of how many carbs they are taking and earlier on I think it was only celebs or entertainers who used to do that and follow strict diet plans to stay fit and presentable but these days normal people like us are doing that too and it's a good thing. Although I am not doing it and probably start after few years. Do You Keep Note of Carbs You are taking?

I eat as close to zero carb as possible. My daily intake is usually less than 6 grams of carbs. Consider that a slice of wheat bread has 15 or more carbs and you can imagine how many carbs most people consume in a day. If you don't eat sugar or carbs, your body will switch from burning glycogen for energy to burning fat for energy.

@Butterfingers Yes. Using a ketogenic diet will induce ketosis, which burn fat rather than sugar. It is not easy to do if you are vegetarian, since most fruit and vegetables are high carb and so, eaten in more limited amounts. But getting rid of grains and gluten is often enough to go "low-carb" which will be of benefit, especially in preventing diabetes.

No, I do not. That would be an added stress on me. I keep checking on the food I eat and enjoy everything in moderation. Yes, I choose healthy options and I exercise daily and so a lot of chores.

@workathomefan I managed to have a healthy weight all these years and decades with regular exercise. But after covid infection, I lost few kilos and I need them back. It is hard to gain it back fast especially in the recovery stage of few months. Well, diet and exercise are the only two things to have a healthy weight, lose weight or gain weight.

@Butterfingers I am laughing because the Swiss director of our bank one day told me "... I thought you were Swiss, I would have never guessed you are Italian, you are so perfectionist!"... well it was intended as a compliment, BUT!!!

No I don't. It adds unnecessary stress in your body and life which isn't needed. I enjoy eating food and have it in moderation along with my daily exercise

I don't think I could be that strict. I've tried using the app before. I got bored of filling the details on each meal.

Not really, but I do track the bites I eat..which is essentially the same as calories. I am too addicted to carbs to cut them out totally, but I do watch my overall calorie intake.

I try to limit my carbs and track it on an app called My Fitness Pal. It gives the nutritional information and I like it because I have to watch my sodium but the carbs, fats, sugars, etc are all included with whatever food you input.

Not even a little bit. To me, a carb is where air and fuel are mixed to be ignited by spark.
