On a kETO Diet, carbohydrates should provide only 5 to 10 percent of calories you consume. To calculate how many grams of carbohdrates, multiply 7 percent by the toal number of calories, which in the example as above is 1665 mutiply 7 percent and the divide by 4 (carbohdrates contain 4 calories per gram). In this example the number is 29 grams.
To figure out the amount of FAT you need in grams mutiply the number of calories you need by 75 percent and then divide by 9 (FAT contains 9 calories per gram). In this example it’s 139 grams.
