I was wondering something... would going on a low carb diet, say around 150 - 200g per day be benificial to cutting, even though you aren't going into ketosis. I'm currently 195lbs and I think I'm going to shoot for a breakdown of:

200g. protein,
200g. carbs,
45g. fat per day

this would be roughly around 2000 calories... how does this sound to you guys?

150-200g isn't really low carbs...

Low carbs=under 30% of your daily caloric intake.

150g-200g low carbs? :eek:

I'm on 55g-100g / day and am never in ketosis and the dieting is going great.

ketosis does not equal weight loss.
you can loose weight with out going into ketosis.
