View Full Version : Quick question about sugars and fats

On my diet I am doing my best to avoid fats and sugars.

However I have a 2 quick questions

I make myself a 1000calorie shake after lifting. Banana, Natural Peanut Butter, Whey protien (2 scoops), 2 cups milk and Oat Meal.

Question: The Natural Peanute butter has like 14g of fat. 2 which are Saturated. If I do cardio 2-3 times a week and lift 3 times a week, why is it bad to have a little fat per day?

I want to get bigger and gain more muscle.

Question: On my shake I also like to add some Nequick. Of course this has alot of sugars. Why are sugars bad again for building muscle?

By the way, i am getting great gains with my diet I am on.

Fats aren't bad in and of themselves. Idiots think that.

Sugar isn't bad for muscle growth. In fact, it helps. Read these:


EDIT: If you're getting great gains, then just do what you're doing and don't worry.
