How many carbs a day?

I have never really watched my carb intake. I have always been mindful of the calorie intake. How many carbs a day should we be consuming? I know some diets try to keep the carbs away but that isn't going to happen with me.

I'm interested in finding out too. I'm always so hung up on calories that I forget about carbs. I also wonder, if anyone knows, if you keep to a diet calorie limit do carbs matter?

Whilst doing atkins diet I was consuming less than 20net g of carbs during induction phase (2 weeks). But roughly we consume 150g+ for instance a slice of wholemeal bread is 12.5g. Unless you're focusing on low carbs I wouldn't worry. Obviously wholemeal products will be lower carb as they have more fibre content x

I am interested to find out too! I'm trying to switch to a higher fat but lower carb diet. I used to eat way too many carbs by way of pasta and breads etc!
