I've read article after article and still haven't come to a conclusion on approx how many grams of carbs I should be shooting for per day.
I'm 5'8, 150. Obviously nowhere near the muscle mass I need to work towards. That being said, I'd rather not do the whole bulk/cut thing, and instead eat a surplus of clean food, make sure I get lots of protein and enough dietary fat - as well as hydration and proper sleep. The reason I'm hesitant with carbs, is because I have a tendency to build up fat in the midsection. I want to gain lean mass, and I do realize that if I want to do it without increasing bodyfat, it will be a slower process, but I'm alright with that.
Any recommendations on how many carbs I should be shooting for? Also, I found the timing thing a little confusing. Am I correct in thinking that the majority of my carb intake should be consumed either in the morning or post-workout?
Thanks in advance for any help.
