Does whey protein powder make you gain weight or get chubby?

Does whey protein powder make you gain weight or get chubby?

They are just not quite a glycemic as simple sugar or 'white' carbohydrates. Sweet potatoes are not fat burners. They do not make you absorb carbohydrates better. Why would one want to absorb sugar 'better'? ...Read more

Does fruit do anything when looking to gain muscle? I drink a lot of those nakéd smoothies, but fruit doesn't help to build muscle does it?

Balance: You need a balanced diet to build muscle. Fruit supplies carbs (which you need), vit c, fluids, and fiber, at a minimum. Yes, you need protein, which body builders often do to excess (your body can only use so much).
