Default About how many carbs per day?

I'm looking to lose roughly 6-7 pounds but then stick to this kind of diet of low carbs, because on this kind of diet I get fuller on less and I feel it will be easier to maintain my desirable weight with LC than any other type of eating. Does anyone have any opinions on how many carbs I should be taking in. I am a very active person. Weight is about 196 and I would like to be around 190 but never over it. I appreciate anyones comments.
Thank you.

Alex

Hi there --

During a weight loss phase, the number of carbs you eat really depends on the plan you choose to follow. I notice you haven't chosen one and you may want to consider taking a look at the different plans and finding one that suits you. You can click here for a description of the different options:

Once you hit maintenance you can start upping your carbs until you hit a place where you aren't losing weight and maintaining...

I can tell you that how much you eat depends on a lot of factors and varies for everyone. Good luck!

Lisa
