I just was lookign through a new fitness magazine. There was a pre worked out diet that had like 150g of carbs in it. IF your trying to loose weight i thought cutting carbs was how to go about doing it. Why keep them that high?

That's a lot for pre-workout but heck, it can be done :)

Your body's main energy souce/fuel is carbohydrates. As long as you're working your ass off at the gym, CHO shouldn't be avoided unless you're on a ketonic diet. My main carb intake is breakfast and pre/post workout (4 meals total)
