Low Carb Macro Calculator

What is low carb?

Keto and low carb are often used interchangeably. While keto is low carb, low carb as a way eating tends to have a slightly higher carbohydrate macro range than ketogenetic ranges.

Like keto, the pain management benefits of low carb eating come from the type of food that you eat and minimising your sugar intake which helps with reducing inflammation in our bodies.

We explain more difference between keto and low carb eating here.

Probably the biggest difference people notice between keto and low carb is that they eat a wider variety of fruit and vegetables on low carb than they do on keto.

A lot of people use keto to course correct and/or lose weight and maintain their health on low carb.

What are the macro ranges for low carb?

The macro ranges for a low carb diet can vary depending on individual preferences, health goals, and metabolic factors. This calculator uses ranges that average around 100-150g carbs per day. Typical macro ranges for a low-carb diet are:

  1. Carbohydrates: Generally, carbohydrates are restricted to a lower percentage of total daily calories compared to standard diets. This typically ranges from 20% to 40% of total daily calories.

  2. Protein: Low-carb diets have moderate to high protein intake to support muscle growth, repair, and satiety. Protein accounts for 20% to 30% of daily calories, but active people or those looking to build muscle may prefer a higher protein intake.

  3. Fat: Low-carb diets often increase fat intake to provide adequate energy. On a low-carb diet, 40% to 70% of calories come from fat. Avocados, nuts, seeds, olive oil, and fatty fish are recommended fats.
