How many grams of carbs per day do you eat?

I am soon to start low carbing as I need to lose 2 stone. After doing some research I have decided to count carbs and work out how many I can tolerate before getting cravings/stopping weightloss. Different articles seem to suggest that some people need to stick to 20 grams or under but others can eat 100 grams +. Just wondered how many carbs people on here eat? I thought that I should allow myself 50 for the first week and see how it goes from there.

I eat 20g max. My body can't tolerate more than that. I start to put on weight immediately. I've lost 56lbs so far so it's working!

Well done! Not sure that I would be able to stick to 20 grams but 56lbs is an impressive loss.

I have never counted my daily carb intake. But I have a rule that I don't eat anything with more than 5 grams of carbs per 100g. Using this method I have managed to lose 3 stone over the course of about 7 months.

I try to stick under 20g as otherwise I find it hard to shift the weight.
