    No, you don't have to eat lots of carbs to gain weight/muscle. Calorie gain and loss comes down strictly to a calorie surplus/deficit.

    To gain muscle though, you need to eat an adequate amount...

    LOL. I don't suppose they've come up with a 'safe' way to eliminate sense of smell/taste temporarily. Man, what a killing they could make!
