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.
GTFO. Cutting is the same as Toned.
NOT words to be used in the industry, they’re fads created by magazine writers and people who have zero knowledge in a health or nutrition environment.
If you’re aiming for pure ascetics (how you look), simply shoot for a healthy diet that follows the food pyramid. You NEED carbs especially if you’re an active individual. If your body cant burn the fuel it needs, it’ll burn the fuel you have- muscle.
Your metabolism will go down and your fat will go up.
