Should I track net carbs or total carbs?

If your main goal is to increase your ketone levels, then it is best to track your net carbs, keep them below 30 grams per day, and decrease your net carb consumption if you want to deepen your ketosis levels even further. If your primary goal is weight loss, the other important variable that you should track is calories and protein.

By keeping your net carbs low, you should inherently keep your total carbs low as well. In general, it’s always good to keep your carb counts low and not to try to push your carb limits to the edge. Eat whole foods and try to get most of your carbohydrates from sources of green leafy vegetables and cruciferous vegetables.
