How much carbohydrates should I have a day?

Living on a high carbohydrate diet of breads, pasta, biscuits, cakes and soft drinks, is fairly typical of the standard modern lifestyle and is in line with the “Australian Guide For Healthy Eating” recommendation of around 25-30% of our daily intake.

This however puts you into a category of the Primal Carbohydrate Curve of 300 grams or more per day or the “Danger Zone”

Living life for long periods eating this amount of highly processed carbohydrate results in weight gain and possible the start of Metabolic Syndrome and is one of the main reasons for obesity & type 2 diabetes.

When I assess my clients daily food intake after the first month on my Primal program, using online calculators like and compare this to the Primal Carbohydrate Curve and their previous diets, it becomes quite obvious how much highly processed carbohydrate foods has impacted on their diets and why they have struggled to loose weight and keep it off in the past.
