I’ve seen it a thousand times on T-Nation: some kid complains about his progress, and is susequently bombarded with replies advising him to “just fucking eat”.
It makes sense. I mean, in order to put on new mass, you would have to give your body extra fuel in order to make this new mass.
However, when I start to think about it, I can’t understand what roles carbs and fats play in muscle building.
I mean, I know why I need to eat a ton of protein, seeing as it is the building block of muscle.
And I know that glycogen is stored in muscle. I also know that lots of fat=healthy test levels.
My question is this: does fat play any role other than increasing T? Do carbs do anything other that provide glycogen?
