I went on a high carb diet to build muscle, and did that pretty well
but I got kinda fat and have recently along with lifting been eating less, and eating smaller smaller amounts more often
but now I am worried I might lose some of the muscle I gained
I can lift as much as I always have, so does that automatically mean I am not losing muscle then?
also are there any supplements I should know about for gaining muscle mass?
I have just been using whey protein and making a shake right after I work out and that is all
is creatine worth trying?
You can totally gain muscle while on a lower calorie diet..but you do need to make sure you are taking in enough. (Look up Alwyn Cosgrove - he is the master in this stuff)
Supplements - You really don't need to...I thing going natural is best. That said I would suggest, especially for a low cal diet to use a BCAA drink. These are excellent for building muscle without having to take in all the calories of a protien shake)
Creatine works - but it also has some down sides. You retain a bunch of water and there are some claims that it is hard on your kidneys. If you do any, make sure to cycle.
