    If fat can't turn to fat, then why should you take it in while bulking?

    well? I've heard it said that to bulk you need to intake more calories, including fat, and that eating sweets can help you in bulking. But if fat can't turn to muscle, why bother taking in those empty calories?

    Your body still needs gas to run the motor.
    Empty, yes.
    Useless, no.

    Fat calories aren't empty calories. Your body NEEDS fat. Bulking is just a way of making sure you consume enough calories to maximize muscle production. The concept of turning fat into muscle has no bearing on this.

    Thw sweets are worthless. Dont touch them or they will tur you as evil as your mother. Tell her to stop bothering me, and if she needs money, tell her to get A DAMN JOB! She's killing me here!


    Anyways, fat does certain things in the body, say, aids the stimulation of the release of certain hormones, and Test, it also supports new cell growth, because cells need a lot of lipidal material in order to be so darn cellular.

    Cell, thats another good one.

    I just figured fat in food was stored as fat in the body
