    Question Go-to staples for Carbs?

    Hey guys. I am 190 lbs (12-13% bf just guessing) looking to lean up just a bit and have never been able to nail down my diet just right. I am working out 2x a day many days (but, otherwise, I work a desk job and am quite lazy)

    My daily diet "goal": 2600 KCal, shooting for 40% carb, 30% carb, 30% protein (not sure if this is ideal)

    Anyway, my main carb sources are figs/bananas (if i'm about to workout) or white rice and sweet potatoes and usually if I miss certain meals due to work I end up with the macros below (always over on fat and way under on carbs). Most easy-to-get carb sources that I know of are garbage. What are your go-to (relatively healthy) carb sources?

    btw all that excess protein and fat mainly came from a gigantic spinach/walnut/cranberry salad with double chicken I'm quite fond of.

    rice works fine for me and is a so incredibly simple with a quality rice cooker. Grill 5# or more of chicken at once, portion it all up with plain rice. Then keep several different flavors of marinade in the fridge so you can change things up whenever you want.

    I cook Jasmine Rice in my cooker. Red potatoes are also good. Morning I eat oats or Cream of Rice. Post workout carb is vitargo.

    Potatoes or rice with my evening meal pretzels during the day and some carbs in my yogurt.

    I don't try to load up before my work outs. Your storing enough in your muscles and liver to get you though any workout. There's about 2,000 calories stored for on demand use; you're not burning through that with a normal weight training workout.
    Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.
