How to maintain muscle mass doing cardio...and look like a Pro?

I have always questioned how this could be done effectively. Especially for those who are naturally of a slim build. You want to increase your weight from lifting weights, you know you need to do cardio work but don't want to lose your 'weight gain' results :S

It is even harder when you are trying to lose that puppy fat that you have around the edges. We have compiled a formula, that if followed correctly over a period of time, WILL give you results.

If you want to gain in muscle mass, you have to eat good meals 5-7 times/day or every 3 hours, with lots of protein from fish egg and red-meat and carbs from pasta, rice, and potatoes. Or if you have some money, buy a gainer like Super Gainer from Twinlab. And do this:

Meal 1.
Good Breakfast like porridge with fruit or something

Meal 2. Drink a gainer meal

Meal 3. Lunch with alot of carbs 2/3 and 1/3 protein

Meal 4. Drink a Gainer meal

Meal 5. Dinner with 1/3 protein and 2/3 carbs

Meal 6. Drink a gainer meal

Meal 7. Eat a dish with 2/3 protein and 1/3 carbs

If you eat like this, drink 3-4 liters of water/day and work out 3-5 times a week you are going to gain in muscle mass. If you want to, you can take a supplement like Creatine Citrate from Peak Nutrition, but the weight gain you are getting from creatine in the beginning is water in the muscle cells, it's not just muscle mass.
