I do try to keep my carbs between 150 and 200g per day. This is quite a bit lower than the NHS recommendation of 300g per day. I do plenty of exercise which I find that I don't have the energy for if I cut any further on a regular basis. I don't think that carbs are a problem if you use them, though I accept that this is subjective and may not be the case for everyone.
