You can slash carbs once more before you hit the lowest you can go. After all, you still need vegetables, and although they provide a good deal of fiber, they also provide real net carbs. Some experts recommend not counting carbs from vegetables as part of your daily total of carbs due to their high fiber content. Yet the carb content of most vegetables is less than 50% fiber. If you’re eating a lot of vegetables, this can add up.
Instead, I prefer to count even fiber as part of daily carb intake, but realizing that at the lowest point carb intake will still be a good 30-60 grams depending on the diet, or roughly about 0.25 grams per pound of body weight. There are also small amounts of carbs in most protein shakes. Since you need them to maximize your results in the gym, you’ll need to leave room in your diet. The bottom line is that even at the lowest point, you can never truly get to zero grams of carbs.
