leaning and building muscle

    As many know ive lost a lot of fat and gained quite a bit of muscle but next phase is to lean out fully and continue with the muscle growth but not extreme just lean and firm.

    Have added hcg to my current protocol so will update everyone on how that goes.

    Also looking at carb backloading. I dont eat many carbs but interested in the concept of high glycemic foods post workout in conjunction with my high protein shake (3 raw eggs and coconut oil avoiding whey and bcass as per jacks advice). Is this a good idea ?

    Not sure to be honest and appreciate others thoughts

    Just looked through some old threads and seems like high carbs post workout are really not that necessary. Hormones the key.

    ok. r u willing gain muscle, but not that much. the supplement L-Carnitine should be fit for u. can help to reduce the water and muscle at the same time when reducing body fat and weight. as u dont wanna gain muscle too much. u could take it for 2 or 3 times a week, cheers.

    "The body makes sufficient carnitine to meet the needs of most people. For genetic or medical reasons, some individuals (such as preterm infants), cannot make enough, so for them carnitine is a conditionally essential nutrient" I were the info on /ods.od.nih.gov/ web.
    Healthy children and adults do not need to consume carnitine from food or supplements, as the liver and kidneys produce sufficient amounts from the amino acids lysine and methionine to meet daily needs [1-3]. The Food and Nutrition Board (FNB) of the National Academies (formerly National Academy of Sciences) reviewed studies on the functions of carnitine in 1989 and concluded it was not an essential nutrient [3]. The FNB has not established Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs)—including a recommended dietary allowance (RDA)—for carnitine [4].
