MrM27 has been very grumpy lately does he need more sugar in his life?

The guy has ripped up abs but at what cost? Judging by his temper on the forums I would say he has low blood sugar levels and this is making him lash out and unsuspecting users. Who will chip in so we can buy him a twix together?

I once read that putting on muscle doesnt increase fat loss that much, is that true?

Apparently it doesn't increase the resting metabolism that much or contribute to fat loss that much but rather the calories burned from weight lifting etc are more significant for fat loss. Is it true is the whole increasing your metabolic rate to loose fat over hyped?
