By the diet you posted in another thread, you were taking in 278g carb and only 78g protein. Although you did not post your fat intake...I am figuring it is around 15-20%. (which is fine)
I would try to get the carbs down and proteins up so that you are closer to a percentage of 40/40/20.
You could drop alot of carbs by eliminating most of the fruit you now eating.
Adding on a protein shake is an easy way to increase the protein.
With the lower carb intake and a better balance of protein/carbs, you should see a decrease in bodyfat.
You do not have to make adjustments to HMB. You might actually find it more effective as you increase your protein.

Thanks a lot Trish for your help ! I'll do what you suggest. It will be especially usefull these days when I won't be able to hit the gym that much, with the kid at home during vacations ! I won't lose muscles with more proteins.
Thanks and Merry Christmas !
