I understand about cutting carbs and have been doing the 5:2 fasting diet for a month (loosing half a stone). Now my OH is thinking (with my encouragement) about doing the BSD. He’s vegetarian so I’ve been studying the recipes here (thank you everyone who has contributed to them) and I am also quite good at creating and adapting existing recipes.
But although I can easily count the calories, I want to ensure we get the correct protein, carbs (and sugars) etc. What should be our limit for these each day? I saw something here about 50g for carbs but couldn’t tell if this was all carbs or just the sugar element.
