Q: I always see info on how many grams of protein to take in per day, but rarely do I see info on how many carbs to take in per day.

A: Most of the bodybuilding literature I have read suggest a 1 to 2 or 1 to 3 protein to carb ratio. I am somewhere in between, which means I take in roughly 2 to 2.5 grams of carbs per gram of protein. My caloric intake is based on my carb intake. If I take in 250 grams of protein per day, I also consume 500 to 625 grams of carbs per day. I try to keep my fat intake below 50 grams (approx. 20% of daily calories) per day. This puts my caloric intake between 3500 and 4000 calories per day. These are off-season numbers.
