    Well, to get shredded you'll want to, but that's up to you. As well, don't try to gain lean mass and cut at the same time, have a focus and go full force w/one or the other. In addition, "power butter" is not a meal, neither is whey protein by itself, etc.

    I'd check out the general guidelines above that are known as the "stickies" and choose either the bulking/cutting one dependent upon your most immediate goals.

    Good luck!

    I have read the stickies, and I'd go with the them but with all those carbs, I am afraid I would get that "bulky, not defined, yet strong" look (if that makes sense) and gain even more weight. Everytime I eat carbs, I get that bloated look (even with cardio) yet when I went on a 2 week atkins-modified diet i lost a good portion of the gut area while dropping about 5 lbs.

    Also I didn't know I had to pick one or the other. Some have told me to bulk up then just go on a cutting diet... but for some reason that doesn't sound right to me

    Isn't there a way to get rid of the flab around the stomach area while at the same time define my chest, arms and so forth with a bit more muscle? thanks
