    There is no upper limit for carbs... In general, a healthy amount is between 45-65% of your total calorie intake. I'm guessing if you are seeing 400% carb intake, it's because you have set a custom target, rather than choosing "fixed values" in your profile.

    When it comes to carbs, I always suggest focusing on quality vs. quantity. Aim to include unprocessed, whole grains like:

    • Oats
    • Bulgar
    • Barley
    • Wheat and rye berries
    • Quinoa
    • Sweet potato
    • Brown rice
    • Fruit
    • Vegetables
    • Legumes (pulses)
    • Nuts and seeds

    If you are still looking to decrease your carbs, make more of your protein choices soy (tofu, tempeh) or seitan based.
