The Quick answer is probably less than 50. That being said, many, including myself, can go much higher once our bodies are trained.
I’m Lori Ballen [Low Carb Lori]a certified Keto Coach and I shed 50 pounds in 6 months on the ketogenic diet.
My business, is that of a marketer. A marketer tests and measures everything. It’s not that I like math, quite the contrary actually. What I do like, is proof.
I got myself a blood ketone meter (which you’ll find is much more effective that keto urine strips) and began measuring morning, noon and night as well as after meals and after
I found that I can eat 100 carbs and still be in ketosis. And even if I’m knocked out of ketosis for a short period of time, I’m back in within a few hours.
Don’t get ketosis confused with weight loss, however. Just because my body is producing ketones doesn’t mean those extra carbs won’t turn into pounds.
As a coach, I coach my clients to begin with a total of no more than 50 carbohydrates in a day and a focus on the net 20. To reach a net 20, you subtract fiber from your total carbs. This encourages the intake of higher fiber foods.
If you’d like to pick up your own ketone blood meter, you can do so here.
