How much carbohydrate should you have ?

Calculate your carbohydrate intake

Activity level g carbohydrate/kg body weight
Light (less than 1 hour per day) 4-5
Light-moderate (1hour per day) 5-6
Moderate (1-2 hours per day) 6-7
Moderate-heavy (2-4 hours per day) 7-8
Heavy (+4 hours per day) 8-10

1. How many kg do you weight? ________________________________ (e.g. 60kg)

2. How active are you? __________________________________ (e.g. Moderate 5-6)

3. Multiple your weight by your activity = ________________________
(e.g. 60 x 5-6 = 300-360g carbohydrate per day)

So that equates to?
388g long-grain brown rice

1.5kg Potatoes, boiled,
cooked in skin, flesh, without salt

or 3kg 30g mixed vegetables including
carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, red peppers,
cabbage and new potatoes
