Carbohydrate is your main fuel source during moderate-to-vigorous exercise, but if you overly restrict it training intensity is likely to suffer. Its difficult to put an exact figure on this because carb requirements vary with training volume and intensity, level of fitness, altitude and gender. But Id suggest you only limit high carb foods if you have to, or where theyre also high in fat. You can also adjust the amount of carbs over the week to focus around bigger training days, with less on the rest and lighter days.
