I've always heard that for protein.

As far as carbs, IMO there is no one size fits all. Some people do better on high carbs while others do great with lower carbs. I would focus on the quality of the carbs first. 20g of carbs from broccoli with have a different effect on your body than 20g of carbs from a coke... or even fruit.
