    Slow learner, I guess.

    But finally I am starting to grasp how important carbs are for growth, and for getting cut up.

    Currently trying to lean up somewhat, and trying a little different shtick.

    1.5 g/kilo bodyweight fast carbs PWShake and a third protein, with some creatine.

    Then 60 minutes later, 2 g/kilo bodyweight complex carbs (usually a big bowl of rice or pasta) and a the same amount of protein as in the PWShake.

    It has improved my metabolism a lot, and my performance is much better as well. Just a great feeling overall.

    I keep the general carb/fat/protein ratio more balanced throughout the rest of the day. Getting lots of healthy fats, and veggies.

    Feels like a new start.

    I was the same way. I worked out about 6 months before realizing how important carbs are for the growth of your muscles. I'm already a hard gainer, 6.0 148lbs. But getting enough carbs now and eating more I'm finally making my way up to my goal weight of 165.
