That sounds good in bodybuilding magazines, but I don't believe it.
Progressive of weight is "everything". Without a proper training program that pushes for more weight on the bar, you are in trouble. Eating a perfect diet can't help you if your effort is sub-par.
I don't know why so many young guys believe they can basically do whatever in the gym, and be OCD about diet, and think they can gain muscle. You will gain some, but not much.
This wasn't on the MAB forum, btw. I just tend to see it quite often on other major BB diet forums.
If nutritionists say "60% carbs, 20%Protein, 20%Fats"
I say "60% Training,20%"Diet/Nutrition/Supplements,20% Blood,Guts,Sweat and Tears,100% Commitment.
