I want to get more lean and maintain muscle definition. I am currently trying out a taking in about 100-120 grams of carbs a day (mostly complex). I’ve read a lot about how some people require more carbs to diet than others but how do you really know what should I be looking out for. I would hate to mess up.
I would check out websites like www.bodybuilding.com and www.beverlyinternational.net for some info. It sounds like you want to lean out and the amount of carbs really is individual. Some people can eat higher carbs and still reduce body fat but a lot of people carb cycle to cut and it works well. also check out www.bodyrecomposition.com. Lyle McDonald is the man on all those intricate topics in nutrition. It definitely depends on your end goal and training too!
