I'm on day 1 of my "low carb"/KETO meal plan. I've always been a calorie-counter, so this low carb thing is completely new to me. My goal is to lose 30 pounds initially, and then another 20-30 pounds after that. I'm currently 5'3" and 180 lbs (female).
My goal is to eat no more than 30 carbs per day, but I'm not going to beat myself up if I eat 35 (you know what I mean?) -- I'm trying to give myself some grace this time around.
So here are my questions --
1) is 30 carbs (or less) per day a good goal?
2) should I be concerned about calorie counts? (ie. my meals and 1 snack today are adding up to almost 1800 calories (!!!!) -- this is mind-blowing to me.
3) is walking a good form of exercise for beginners on this KETO/low carb journey?
Anything else I should know or keep in mind while I start this journey?
Wish me luck! I hope you have the best day ever!
