How Many Carbs Should I Eat Per Day?

Today’s Q & A – How many carbs should I be eating each day?

I want to address this question because I’m a big fan of consuming carbohydrates.

As you’re probably well aware, once of the most popular diets of our time is based around the no carb or low carb dieting.

6 Things You Should Know About Intermittent Fasting (IF)

Intermittent fasting is here to stay.

And here’s why…

What many people called a fad is no longer just that.

Many of the top fitness gurus continue to push this form of eating on social media, in their Youtube videos, on their blogs, podcasts and books.

However, gaining fat is only possible when you’re consuming more calories than you’re burning. That’s the science behind weight gain.

If your metabolism is bad, then you’ll struggle to lose weight even if you’re consuming a low amount of calories.
