Confused about meal planner

When I try to do a meal plan on carb manager it comes out with too many carbs for the day but calories are under.  ie greater than 22g/day.  Is this correct?

  • It would seem you are picking items to plan your meals that are too high in carbs. Focus on lean protein, lots of veggies and good fats.

    Fatty meats such as chicken thighs, ribeyes, ground beef, salmon are preferred over lean meats. If you choose leaner cuts make sure to cook them in healthy fats.  It’s the fats that provide your body energy in place of glucose.

  • I was thinking of the plan I am doing which is moderate carb when I responded.  With moderate carb lean protein Is good. But with keto, fatty meats work.
