Calculate Your Carbs

The key to shedding flab is to adjust your carb intake to your activity level. Multiply your target body weight by 1 if you have a desk job, work out in a gym several times a week or less, and your main goal is fat loss.

Multiply by 2 if you're a recreational athlete who trains for more than an hour a day. Multiply by 3 if you're a competitive athlete who trains multiple hours a day, or if you're a guy with a mini-cooper body and a corvette metabolism who is struggling to gain weight.

The number you end up with indicates how many grams of carbs you should eat every day. If you're in category 1 and weigh 180 pounds, that's the equivalent of about two Chipotle burritos.
