Can You Limit Carbohydrates, But The Amount Of Calories A Little Extra?
Good evening doctor, I’m Tiara from Depok, want to ask, right now I’m on a low karbo diet. On the web Hello doctors recommend limiting carbohydrates 60-130 grams per day which contains 240-520 calories. My question is, Can I still limit carbo at 60-130 grams per day 900 – 1300 calories?
Good afternoon Tiara, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
A person's caloric needs basically vary depending on their weight, activity, and several other factors, and so is the determination of the number of calories recommended for someone on a diet.
To find out how many calorie targets and how carbohydrate diet patterns are recommended for you to fulfill everyday, it is highly recommended that you consult further with a nutrition specialist. In addition to making it easier for you, consultation with a doctor also aims to ascertain whether your current condition is allowed or not undergoing the diet.
Regarding your questions, you should also consult a nutrition specialist. The articles written on the HealthReplies.com website are only general guidelines that are widely recommended and used, but for specific calculations, you need to consult a doctor first.
For now, you can try to do a carbohydrate diet according to the one in the article, then adjust it further with the calculation results from your nutritionist.
I hope this helps.
