Anyone with a degree in nutrition will tell you that your body weight is entirely determined by calories in vs. calories out.
It's not the most complex thing in the world. Quite sensical and simple, actually.
i was mainly talking about burning fat. not necessarily losing weight. lets say you so eat just below your maintenance calories. but if you eat it all in protein, fat, and little carbs, your are going to have a different body than someone who is eating low protein, low fats, and high carbs.
and my friend who has a degree in nutrition eats slightly above his maintenance calories and he has a 6 pack. he just recently started to eat some more carbs because he said he couldn't gain any weight without carbs.
The conversation was about fats and carbs. Protein is a constant. You're attempting to manipulate the conversation in your favor but adjusting constants. Completely distorts where Corey is coming from.
If your friend wasn't gaining weight, he wasn't eating above maintenance. Adding carbs adds calories and puts him above maintenance.
Yes. If I was rich I'd buy it again, but I've decided to just focus on diet and cut out supplements other than Creatine, Protein, Vitamins, and Fish Oil.
However Beta-Alanine is probably the next most proven supplement.
i'm kind of the same as you right now. i also take green tea extract and ZMA though. i don't like taking more supps than i have to. but this stuff is relatively cheap and has good reviews. so i might give it a try.
