Mate, the advice I gave was about getting lean, not building muscle. So hopefully that clears that up.
I've been training for 7 years, in that time I took myself from a scrawny 115 lbs to 208 lbs (with the same BF of abut 18% over that time). I am very proud of that - I was the skinniest guy back in high school, and now I am bigger than most and managed to get my arms to just under 18 inch. My body holds fat well, so 18% doesn't show. So, I have learned a great deal along the way. I live and breathe training and nutrition. I do know what I'm talking about.
Since I jumped on the AD, I am now down to 13.5% BF @ 200lbs (checked today). The only reason for this thread was to get some insight into making good muscle gains on the AD.. So the question I'm asking is not related to the advice I gave. I have experienced just how easy it is to lose fat and get lean on the AD diet - I'm interested to hear about those who've made big gains and remained lean during that time.
