I have been working out for 9 months now and not really gained any significant mass. I started working out I was pudgy 170 , got down to 150 within a couple of months at least , but after a good 6 months I weigh 158 , really lean and tone , but not as much mass I would like. I was recently schooled saying that you need complex carbs , ie. maltodextrins so that when you work out you will burn those complex carbs while preserving muscle. Until recently all I had been concentrating on my protein intake , that's all , with little or no regard to carbs , complex or the like. First of all is this correct , secondly is Cytogainer a good" all in 1" substitute or should I buy my normal whey protein and then by maltodextrin in bulk. Any insight would be appreciated.
ps. I am starting to add natty pb and a tblspn of olive oil to my diet , for the fat , so I think I have got that covered . I was ignoring that as well , under the assumption any fat is bad fat , now I know that to be false as well.
