I've found it's important to have about half farmers in the first 20-30 levels, because food is usually the biggest component of housing structures, followed closely by wood. Also, food costs for trainers get high really quick. Wood of course is essential for blocking shields and gyms. The problem with metal is that you don't need much of it when weapons & armor are levels I-IV, but at higher levels you do, and lots of it. I usually wind up with a crapload of Weapon and Armor Upgrades I can't afford, and when I do buy them, I have to wait forever till I can make actual items. Using perks that increase trimp productivity helps considerably.

I also thought I didn't need that many Explorers, 4-5 at most. But when Gateways become unlocked, now I need hundreds. :-)
