Sure: The real question is why you would want to. A lifestyle change is far more effective. Your muscle mass is a function of your genetics and how hard you force your muscles to work in your job or fitness regimen. Your body fat is calories in versus calories out. Many people who take protease inhibitors for HIV prefer a low body fat look because fat when present tends to distribute in odds ways.
