    okay i don't know much about bodybuilding.

    how do you build muscle without definition to it?

    Probably one of the most common misconceptions in muscle building. It falls into the same category as the whole idea that you can pinpoint burning fat to a certain area of the body. You can't...there is no such thing as spot reduction. You should not change your weight workouts in any way during a cutting phase. You simply need to increase your cardio and decrease your calorie intake. Changing up your weight workout to lighter weights with more reps will just cause you to burn more muscle tissue along with the fat, and that isn't what you want to burn.

    Weight isn't the only thing to be careful of. When was the last time you had blood work done? Body builder's and athletes that use supplements like whey protein can fall victim to high cholesterol due to the fact protein sups are somewhat high in cholesterol. That's why you should be careful and use it as a supp, not as a main source of protein.

    As for the muscle without definition, you need to deplete yourself. Cut out carbs for a few days and do your workout with cardio and see some new veins and lines while you are depleted. Its really cool.

    A few weeks ago. My cholesterol is actually down ten points.

    My main source of protein is all lovely chicken, disgusting cottage cheese, and various forms of potatoes (not fried).

    Potatoes are starch, largely carbohydrates. Choose a different source of protein.

    The chicken and a low/no fat cottage cheese are great though. I do Tuna (white albacore in water) mixed with cottage cheese.

    Well, in general potatoes are very nutritious, and even though they don't have a ton of protein, their protein quality is very high.

    So I advocate potato consumption in general for everyone, even though I don't know about them as a primary source of protein

    I'm giving you really good advice here, you would be smart to take it.

    Kal El who ignored my post because 99% of the time I troll him, but not this time. Most people are misinformed with one area or another in regards to bodybuilding (and who can blame them because 10 people will tell you 10 different things on the same subject) and I feel compelled to correct them. Hell, even professional bodybuilders are a horrible source for information because they are genetic freaks whose bodies will respond to any stimulus.

    I wasn't ignoring you, I just didn't feel obliged to respond. I don't ignore posts, I read them, but unlike some other people in this world, I've learned that not everything needs a reply from me.

    And yes I've heard a million different things on the subject so I'm dropping the entire idea of toning, but instead on focusing on decreasing my body fat while pushing myself to gain more.

    Hi Kal El,
    You need to get more quantity of protein daily and if you want to get it naturally then egg is the pure form of protein...
    should take eggs at breakfast...
