[IP] Re: Total Daily Carbohydrate Count



Lourees,

You were given a 1,200 calorie diet.  The carbohydrates added up to 191.5
grams.  Each gram of carbohydrate or protein is equal to 4 calories.  The
carbs account for 766 calories or 64% of your total daily amount.  I would
think your total daily carbs for your 1,200 calorie diet should be about 100
grams or 400 calories.  That would leave 800 calories from protein and fats. 
Remember, each gram of fat is equal to 9 calories.

I hope I haven't confused you.
