I am following the BFL method of palm size for proteins and fist size for carbs. It's working great with no problems. Only today, I was faced with a situation where this way of measuring didn't work, and I'm anticipating several similar situation over the next two weeks. How many grams of carbs in a single meal are considered reasonable/enough to have? I mean to refer to the net carb content in the food, not the whole weight of a food considered generally a carb. erFor example if I have 100gm of watermelon, it has 20grams of net carbs, so i am after the number of the net carbs per single meal on average.
Thank you for reading :o)
A regular Myoplex, which is a meal replacement drink, has 18g of carbs so I base it off that. I try to sit between 18 to 20g. 22g at most and not consistently. 15g or 16 g when I don't want quite as many.
