So, for the past 8 weeks, I've been on a pretty big diet. I've lost 52 lbs. thus far in these 8 weeks.

I want to use some kind of muscle builder too, to help change some of the weight into muscle.

Is there any muscle builders out there that don't counter-act the weight loss I've been having?

Thanks in advance for anyone who can help.

congrats on losing that much weight man...you should just work out without muscle builder things, thats what i do...

though you might want to try like a whey protein...

Thanks man...I've talked to a few other people. I think I'm just going to drop to my desired weight, then try to put on a bit more weight again to gain muscle

Increase your protien intake and work out. Lower your reps and increase your weight on your weight work. You should be eating protien in grams, equal to your body weight. Egg whites are a great source, as is tuna.

You don't need anything artificial to gain muscle mass.

.....if only people like Bonds, McGuire, Giambi, and A-Rod, to name a few, would heed that advice!

I've also been on a diet. Bathing suit season is coming up quickly.
I finally figured out a way to drink a healthy cola and still add protein to my diet. Cheers!

How did you do it man? I've been asking around to look for the best diet plan for me with summer and work coming up. My first year of college sucks with weight issues. Something about that cafeteria food just sits in you even though I eat less than ever and have stayed decently active.

Eat A LOT of chicken and tuna dude. Lift weights. Go to heavier weights that you can only get a few reps out of. Thats all you need. Protien and the proper weight training regimine and you will put on muscle.

If you have already lost the amount of body fat that you desired, begin eating a lot more. Simply stay away from sugar. Sugar is the only food substance that has ZERO nutritional value for your body. If you are working out and doing cardio, then you will use up plenty of food. Eat dude. Eat plenty of protein especially.

Wow. That's good. What kind of diet are you on? I could stand to lose some weight myself.

Congrats!

Welcome, congrats on the weight loss, that should help you in the ring if you decide to come back.

Some good advice here. Personally, I use a protein shake with 60 grams of protein per serving. It has a relatively low caloric intake as well, and the carbs aren't bad either.

I also cycle with anabolic switch, which is a creatine compound before anyone jumps down my throat.

Make sure, like anything else that you use, that you drink a ton of water. No sense in dropping all that weight and putting on muscle if your kidneys crap out.

And lifting weights before doing your cardio can help burn some extra fat. I like to do cardio first, but research has proven the former to be more succesful than the latter.

I think this is more of a drink for you then Bob. Bacon grease with nice presentation. If you think about it, it is kinda like orange beer with an orange slice.

Just thought I'd give an update. As of this morning, it's been 5 1/2 months and I've lost a total of 104 lbs to this point. Got some more to go, but things are going smooth.

Congrats again man. I have lost 30 so far. I have also began lighting weights. I hope to get a little bigger and get really toned. I found a forum that I joined recently looking for about the same advice. It has a ton of good topics. Have a look.
