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.
If time is not a major concern, PLAY WIT IT & FIND OUT 4 SELF!
I am an all natural guy, the most I utilize is a protein supp. I do major research n this area just because “in my opinion” this is where the $ trap(gimmicky sales pitches) stem from.
Allow urself time 2 embrace ur program & record ALL changes from body comp to your ability w/the conditioning (strength, energy, ect.)
We are all different and many times similar things will still effect us differently.
Low carbs – higher fat
Low fat – modified/higher carb inake
In the natural approach, I can tell directly how my body is responding to what Im doing, If i don’t like it, I change it but I allow myself sufficient time 2 adjust. Im not HIM, so I dont take his word as law.
Next decide if its just a look ur after or the package deal. Me, I like the package, I can stay fit all year round without worrying about cycling on & off this or that product or doing damage from undernourishing self. When I wanna be lazy 10-15lbs is my limit, then the fun starts all over and I can experiment w/self and gain a new overstanding of my body @ that time.
I babble sometime, sorry… If ur goal is 2 look like magazine guy try what they suggest. If your goal is 2 establish a learning pattern 4 self 2 manipulate when & how u choose, do research, guinee pig self & benefit.
Reality is that’s hard to answer w/o knowing u, ur body type or present composition. Hope this was helpful n some way… peace
