ok so i am following a cutting diet which basically has you eating mostly protein and god fats, along with vegtables as your carb source. instead of cutting with this, i am trying to add some lean mass, by using the books 3500-4000 calorie plan they have set up. for some reason right now its hard for me to get that many calories without eating carbs, so i was wondering if it would be okay to get my extra calories from natural peanut butter, since that is loaded with calories?

Why no carbs?M.Ed. Ex Phys

well apparently this book has your body trying to use fat as its fuel source so it burns off the fat during the cut. every 21st meal is a large carb meal, which equates to about every 3 days, if you eat 7 times a day. i dont know if what i want to do is going to work, because it is a cutting diet.

You're contradicting yourself in your posts. Are you trying to cut or add LBM?

i was trying to add LBM, but doing it with this diet that is supposed to be for a cut, only i was upping the calories thinking that it might work that way. my logic must be flawed?...
i guess i should just do it the traditional way, huh?
sorry about the confusion

ok, so as long as i eat good carbs, like oatmeal, 100% whole wheat products, i can still add lean mass and reduce fat (somewhat, cause i know both cant be done at the same time in equal amounts)?

Your total caloric intake will dictate what your body is more primed for (fat loss or lbm gain).
