    370 seems to high, you probably want to me around 2500-3000 for your recomp, and 370g of carbs makes up more than half of that.

    How many calories were you consuming for your bulk?

    300 protein, 275 carbs, 80 fat on a lifting day. recomps are pretty difficult to actually do right. ive done them with success and i recommend recomping for much longer than just a month and then bulking again. either bulk or recomp u pick.

    275 carbs is by no means super low or anything. I eat 70 at breakfast, 30 during my workout, 70 post workout, 70 post post workout so thats 240 which leaves a little room for extra carbs throughout the day.

    I shoot for 2 fruits a day (apples and strawberries are pretty low carb), and 4+ veggies a day. Ill get 30 carbs from waxy maize during my workout and the rest of the carbs come from pasta, oatmeal, whole wheat bread, brown rice, etc...
