    Question of Strength 40 by Charles Poliquin

    https://www.t-nation.com/training/qu...of-strength-40

    Q: Is there a supplement-related trick to retaining muscle while on a strict fat loss program?

    A: Not only can you retain muscle while losing fat, but as I talked about in the previous question, you can gain muscle. In fact, you should gain muscle if you know how to train and eat properly!

    One thing to remember: If you?re on a fat loss diet, you must be consuming a lot of good dietary fats. A lot of guys who don?t retain muscle when dieting are basically eating too lean ? egg whites and chicken breasts all day long. You need to add quality fats, and I?m not talking about a burger from McDonalds.

    Dr. Mauro DiPasquale taught me a long time ago that when you go low carb to lose body fat, you still need to take in a lot of dietary fat or you won?t have any success. We?re talking about smart fats here like omega-3s, which can battle inflammation. You have to realize that our DNA has only evolved about .02% in the last forty thousand years, and the meat our caveman ancestors ate had much more omega-3 than the meat we eat now.


    I realize how anabolic food is every time I go teach in Costa Rica Last time I taught a Biosignature Modulation course in the CR, the students took my body fat Monday morning. I was at 8% and weighed 198 pounds.

    Now, there?s no such thing as grain-fed in CR; they can?t afford it, so cows eat grass. And if you eat a mango over there you have to eat it over a sink because it?s so juicy. The eggs too are far more anabolic. They?re orange and full of omega-3s, like all eggs naturally were thousands of years ago.

    A CR avocado tastes like butter it?s so rich in nutrients. Eating avocados over here is like eating fiberglass once you?ve had a CR avocado. It?s like having sex with Pamela Anderson then having to have sex with Rosie O?Donnell.

    Anyway, five days later, after eating only CR foods, I weighed 209 at 6% body fat. My business partner came to finish the seminar, took one look at me and said, ?What happened to you?!?

    But when I work in the UK or Ireland, I lose muscle mass and put fat on almost inevitably, even though I try to eat as cleanly as possible. The quality of the food is just piss poor.

    Back to your question. One of the most important supplements to take when on a calorie restricted diet is BCAAs. You need about 50 grams a day. Take it between meals.
