I notice in my daily totals that I am alotted 211g of carbs per day. Based on 9 calories per gram. This would be 1899 calories just in carbs when I have only 1440 allotted per day. Can someone explain this?

Carbs are 4 calories per gram; fat is 9.

you shouldnt pay so much attention to the 1 carb, but how many in a day you want to alott yourself.
for example, Im eating 1800 cals a day. for me this breaks down to 4 starches per day. I spread them thru my 5 meals per day. 1 starch = 1 english muffin or 1/2 cup of brown rice.
Does that make sense? 1 starch should = around 80-100 cals.
