I usually take in between 1400-1800 calories per day.

90-130 grams of protein

10-25 grams of fat

150-210 carbs

Should I be eating less carbs??

You should experiment. Some people's bodies react diffrently to carbs due to their insulin sensitivity (or so I heard).

How much do you weigh. 1800cals seems damn low to me for a cut.

eat more, start off with how active you are and work down from there

if your very active, like every day intense, start off with mebbe 3400, wait 2 weeks and start dropping if you dont see a deficiant

active, 2700, then start dropping if no deficiant

no active, 2300, then start droppping if no deficiant

also depends on a few things off the top of my head
1) your physical size/weight
2) natural metabolism
3) when you do your workouts

but im sure someone else will post some more info, i dont know much, hell i starve myself to get my results

edit: im 6 foot, 172lbs (yah! empty belly) and my maintce is around 2400 cals, with a 3 day a week lift routine- no cardio

besides the generalized "eat more" mantra - -you DEFINITELY need more fat. i think that should be your first priority instead of the carbs.

Oops, I just read your sig. Ya, you need to eat more man, don't worry about cutting at this moment.
