A good point. I have no idea how much I burn per day (and don't point me to a calculator) so tracking calories from the beginning is only relevant for being able to adjust your calories later. In other words, if I start gaining weight, maybe I'll cut back on what I eat. If I start losing, then I'm good. No need to know the exact number, right?

I basing this on Peter Attia's recommendation of <50g, but I think I'm <30g most days anyway. My carbs are really only coming from nuts and leafy veggies, so I'm not too worried. I appreciate the correction.
