Good point. But what use is it to diet, trying to lose weight, without exercise? You'll still be fine at 45% carbs without exercising. With exercise, a lot of cardio, you should be higher. Around 50-60 percent. The "Runner's Diet" calls for 60% carbs, and you'll notice you won't have any energy if you're doing a lot of cardio and you're below 50%.

Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions
