Most everyone is trying to gain muscle! That's not what I meant.
Are you trying to gain fat also, leave fat the same, or lose fat? For the first, double your sodas. For the second, leave it the same. For the third, cut it out.
Fat gain is not "inevitable". you may chooose to "GFH". but that is still a choice.
Fat gain is inevitable while trying to gain muscle in non-beginners.
Myself, for instance, will probably never be able to gain new muscle without putting on some fat in the process. Such is the nature of the beast. (Of course, unless I juiced, then it's possible)
