Look at overall calories first. For instance, if you're eatind 3,000 calories a day it's probably going to be hard for you to lose weight no matter what the amount of carbs is. Rather, control your overall calories first. There is some debate about how many of those calories should come from carbs, but if it's around 50%-60% you should be ok. Another consideration is the type of carb. Check out this link from Vanderbilt University for more information: http://vanderbiltowc.wellsource.com/dh/content.asp?ID=655 Let's say you need to eat 1800 calories a day. This is a reasonable estimate without knowing your specific situation. If 60% of that were carbs, that would translate to 1080 calories, or 270 grams. That would leave you with 360 calories (90 grams) of protein, and 360 calories (40 grams) of fat. All of this assumes you are exercising as well, trying to do some cardio most days of the week and strength training 2-3 days per week. It's a rough estimate, but I'm guessing that if you follow this formula you will be on the way to long term weight loss success.
