I still dont think people understand that you can actually have higher amounts of carbs in ur diet as long as u eat protein, fibrous carbs and complex starches in the mix. Low fat high carb diet has worked well for me, granted I am an ecto which changes all the rules.

This is my doing though because I shifted down to low fat consumption while increasing my rice, potatoes and fibrous varieties of carbs while keeping my protein around 1 - 1.5g per lb of mass. I was training so hard in the gym that I needed 300+g of carbs before training each day in order to have the energy levels to sustain the correct pace and volume in my workouts. At one point in time I was nearly diabetic, with a serious hypoglycemic issue with blood sugar always dropping below healthy levels. This was due to my choice of carbs, rather than the amounts of carbs. I was eating simple carbohydrates rather than complex ones and seldom had healthy servings of protein and fiber with those meals making the flux in insulin even worse.
Eventually, I changed my habits and went towards healthy carbs and the pre-diabetic issue disappeared. Now my body has a very proper insulin response to carbs and I don't get fat with high amounts of them (so long as I eat the right portions with them). My point is, my body has a high metabolism, so I need all the anabolic activity I can get so I choose to eat carbs since they illicit the greatest response of insulin of the three macros. The more insulin, the more muscle. Yet, I keep my carb choices limited to carbs that take a while to digest along with adding healthy amounts of protein and fiber to each meal. This allows for optimal insulin response which keeps me energetic, anabolic & not getting any fatter. In fact, I have put on 5-6lbs of muscle in the past several weeks with little change in body fat.

1) Maintain high metabolism - the more carbs you consume, the more calories your body will burn. The body has a preference for carbs over fat and protein for energy - mainly due to the ease of breaking it down. However, we don't want the stmoach to digest them too fast.
2) Put on weight - carbs are less filling than protein, making them more ideal than protein for increasing calories since we can typically eat more of them at any one meal.
3) Maintain a steady anabolic state - Carbs create a very positive insulin response. However, we want to draw out the digestion of those carbs so that insulin is constantly trickling but never surging. This explains my desire to add a small amount of fats and a healthy portion of protein and fiber to each carb meal.
