Carbohydrates provide powerful fuel for the body and brain. Use this calculator to find out how many carbs you need to eat in a day to gain muscle, lose fat, or maintain your weight.
Carbs perform many other functions in the body as well. For example, they boost the hunger-suppressing hormone leptin, which is the idea behind a low-carb diet.
Carbohydrates get a bad rap because when eaten in excess, they may add adipose tissue, aka fat. You’ll notice that the calculator recommends lower carb levels for fat loss and higher for muscle gains. But if incorporated into a diet in the right levels and at the right times, carbs can provide all of the benefits with none of the cost.
