    fats and carbs, which is better






    ur body needs protein, carbs, fats, vitamins to build muscle. if u go on low-carb u deprive ur body of some bodybuilding nutrients, and same with fat. but i notice when i go on low-carb diets i dont tend to build muscle as easy, but when i go on low-fat diets i build muscle better. For instance, i went on low-carb 2 weeks ago and ran 2 miles every morning, i only lost a pound and i felt like i was getting bigger on the sides...then i gave up after realizing i only lost a pound, so i started eating carbs again and i felt slimmer and looked slimmer, i loooove IHOP...i went to IHOP like 4 days in a row and had like 3-4 different platters, all carbs of course- little fat. I started eating low-fat i realized, and i felt like i was losing weight and still gaining some muscle. If u HAD TO diet while trying to build muscle, would u choose low-carb or low-fat?? OR, would u forget it and just eat whatever. I think im planning on bulking for 4-5 months when i get to college, then cutting to lose fat.

    I dont go low carb OR low fat... I balance out what my body needs with moderate carbs, moderate fat and protein.

    Your body NEEDS healthy fats for normal bodily functions, as well as carbs for that reason and energy.

    IMO anyways.

    low fat diets = low test production

    Low fat would be better for anabolism, but Lam is right: you need fat to make testosterone. You could eat low fat and add some fish oil caps, flax, and nuts to get the muscle growth and stay slim, but calories are the most important factor.

    I couldn't agree more. Proper balance with the right kinds of carbs and fats (and lots to good protein) is the key.
