Okay, so Im not sure if this is the right section to post this in, but I will ask anyhow. SO my friend, who I work out with everyday, basically eats ANYTHING he wants to and he still is able to see results as far as lifting (he is not trying to lose body fat). His upper body is becoming noticable toned, although he still eats pizza, burgers, and other fatty foods. Only thing he said he does is not eat sweets or dessert, no pop, eats more fruit and veggies when throughout day, and he drinks strictly water (and beer). I dont believe our metabolism has anything to do with it as he is not trying to lose body fat just gaining muscle. Is this possible for me also? If I cut out all sweets, drink more water, eat more fruits/veg, and exercise more, can I eat what I want and still lose weight?View Thread
