More carbohydrates?

I am an athlete highly active in weight training, martial arts, and cardio work. I'm looking to put on some muscle since I am a rather skinny male and am taking protein powder. I was wondering if taking in some carbohydrates through supplementation would also help as well. I am planning on taking Endorox R4 which contains 50g of carbs and 20g of protein which is carbs at a 4:1 ratio which they recommended for a speedier revcovery. Is this a good idea? Thank you!

I believe taking such preparations to try to achieve some preconceived notion of what a body should look like is frank abuse of the body. Poorly digggested protein in the blood is a precondition for endobiosis ( Food is the perfect source of nutrition. In the raw state it comes with all the enzymes and nutrients needed. The same cannot be said of that stuff you are using to manipulate your body. I suggest you look at hormone levels as these may be depressed. The only decent test for that is the 24 hour urine output by AAL Labs. Few docs are familiar with this, but the docs on this web site, or those on the referral service should be.
