  1. *Easiest Calories*


    This thread is for convenient, calorie packed foods/snacks/meals. Convenience is key, tastiness is key, "cleanliness" is not as long as it isn't full of trans fat. Low cost is a plus. High protein is a plus, but not totally required in this thread. The kind of stuff you can eat when you have no appetite. Give me your favorites.

    PB&J Sandwich. I prefer Skippy over the natty stuff and I layer it on thick(actually Walmart brand is very good too). I use high protein bread that has 7g/slice. Feel free to use honey or sliced banana if jelly gets boring. Goes great with a tall glass of milk.

    Cold Macaroni Salad/Potato Salad. Yes, those big tubs in the grocery store. TONS of cals in just a 1/2 cup serving. Cottage cheese is great stirred into it for extra protein. So much mayo, it's very easy to overeat on this stuff.

    Chef Boyardee. Jumbo Spaghetti & Meatballs are just 86 cents and they even come in an easy open can. I don't even bother heating them up. 540 cals, 24g protein. The Overstuffed Ravioli & 99%FF Ravioli are lower in fat, if you're into that kinda thing.

    Whole Milk. 1 quart has 600 cals & 32g protein. Nuff said.

    Trail Mix. I buy the Walmart brand. Nuts, raisins, m&ms. 160 cals in just 3 tablespoons.

    Baked Beans. A can of Bush's Southern Pit BBQ has 850 cals. 30g protein, 30g fiber. If you're really poor you'll buy a can of generic too and mix them together.

    Simply Asia Noodle Bowls. Incredibly overpriced for what they are (about $2.50/bowl for flavored noodles), but frickin delicious and literally ready to eat after 2min in the microwave. 79g carbs/14g protein/410 cals. I love eating these after a workout. I like every flavor I've tried.

    McDouble. Since the DBL Cheese is now $1.20, you gotta get a McDouble for a buck, which is the same thing with only 1 slice of cheese. Still a good buy. Skipping the fries is my way of eating "clean".

    :burg:


  2. Just reading that makes me hungry

  6. Whole milk is awesome. As a pre bed meal, I'm drinking 20 oz of whole milk mixed with a lean muscle meal from GNC. Adds up to about 600 cals and a good way to end the day! haha

    I like quality calories so i put in the blender 50 g American Pure Whey 100% whey with 50 g waxymaize with 2 tbsp peanut butter..I add ice and blend it..
    tastes so good and has all the macronutrients

  8. Good thread

    McDouble

  9. These meals may have a lot of cals, but there might only be a few here that are even remotely healthy.

  10. no veggies? where's the nutrients?

    Seriously, did you really think there would be a lot of veggies in the *Easiest Calories* thread?

  12. Some of you are missing the point of this thread. These are not meals to build your diet around (except the milk). These are for when you're trying to build muscle and you need to eat more, but you don't feel like you can. These are for every skinny guy out there that just doesn't think it's possible for him to gain weight. These are for every skinny guy that tortures himself day after day, eating nothing but skinless chicken breasts and oatmeal, wondering why he can't add more weight to the bar.

    Build your diet around protein(at least 1g/lb bw), then include several servings of vegetables and fruit, EFAs and some whole grains. When you're full and you're still struggling to gain weight, check out this list.

    Cream of wheat is also pretty good. 3 tbsp has 120 calories, 23g carbs, 4g protein.

    These are also ways to make skinny guys fat. Also, I don't remember seeing McDonalds on a list of **** to eat to gain muscle.

    Only if they go too far over maintenance. That's why fat guys are usually better off eating clean, they have trouble staying only 250-500 cals over maintenance. Skinny guys, not so much.

    Also, I don't remember seeing McDonalds on a list of **** to eat to gain muscle.
    What, did you not read my first post in this thread?

  16. dante trudel eat raviolis and double chesse bugers and hes a big lean mofo people dont realise as long as your getting all your nutrients pop or hambugers wont really hurt you that bad hell it could proable make you bigger I've always thought a lot of the result from cell tech type products come just from incresing carbs and cell tech isnt much differnt than pepsi calories and protien are the 2 most important factor and water intake.

  17. i think he just listed like 3 things with hydrogenated oils...

    and practically all of those things shouldn't be used even for a DIRTY bulk...

    u'd be better off just drinking olive oil if calories are really your bottom line

    Mcdoubles have about a gram of trans fat per burger. Peanut butter has an incredibly tiny amount. The others are trans fat free.

    Calories and protein are EVERYONE'S bottom line. Please explain why these foods shouldn't be used and why olive oil would be better.

  19. I take two packets of oatmeal and mix in a scoop of muscle milk (any flavor.)

  20. You don't have eat like crap to bulk. You're just increasing the triglycerides in your body. That just makes it harder to cut back down. You'll be gaining more fat than lean muscle. It would be going in a viscous cycle: get fat with some muscle, then cut and get less fat (lose a little muscle in the process). It's ridiculous, lean muscle is much preferred and more functional instead of walking around looking like a fat ass. (And feeling like one). Bulk clean. You'll feel better.

    The veggie comment was sarcasm (hard to convey in messages)

    So you're saying that you need a high carb diet instead of a high fat diet in order to get "lean gains"?

  22. It's important to pay attention to how your body responds to different levels of macronutrients.

    I know when I eat high carb, high protein, moderate fat ( 40-50-10, respectively) I blow up and get watery looking. Instead, when I bulk, I concentrate on a more even distributiion between fat and carbs (protein-50%, carb-25%, fat-25%). A dirty bulk diet will be concentrated with more fats, namely saturated. Saturated fats must comprise of only 7% of total calories. It's preferable to consume more protein to grow muscle instead of fat. Fat is not the building blocks of muscle, protein is.... eat more of it.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) has concluded that saturated fats negatively affect cholesterol profiles, predisposing individuals to heart disease, and recommends avoiding saturated fats in order to reduce the risk of a cardiovascular disease.

    So, to directly answer you question, you must learn how your body operates with regard to macronutrients and consume healthy choices muscle, not fat. Why not minimize the amount of fat you gain and maximize the muscle you grow by avoiding foods that promote fat gain? (fast foods high in saturated fats, enriched flour)

    Eat more foods that promote a more thermic effect on your body and avoid having to cut 30 pounds after you bulk. (That's what I had to do before, it sucked!)

  23. lighten up people! eating at mcdonalds is not going to kill you or make you look like sh1t! As long as you do it on rare occasions, i say enjoy life a little. For me, mcdonalds makes me happy, its a standing memory in all of our heads as kids and its something about the red and yellow. I can still maintain an attractive physique and have a couple $1 mcdoubles for a quick on the go snack.... idk about you nazi's

  24. I'm just not a big proponet of the mcdouble choice or eating out in general. The food isn't quality. The flour used for most of the stuff you listed is enriched and bleachedad the burgers are comprised of mostly saturated fat. You can take the list and turn it into a more quality list, but generally speaking, these foods are just caloricly dense.

    Why not eat a sweet potatoe for starch instead of an enriched asian noodle?...

    There's easy calories: 400g of sweet potatoe and 10 oz of chicken = 360 Kcals+ 300 Kcals= 660 Kcals of quality, un-preserved, raw, straight-up nutrients for your body to utilize.

  25. it's a good discussion, we're not nazi's

  26. Should have renamed the thread.
    'Easiest ways to cheat on a bulk'
    'Best ways to justify a crappy diet'

  27. I'm skinny and eat fast food everyday. I have barely any fat on me and I grow when I want to. I've eaten this way my whole life including a whole year of 13 donuts for saturday mornings. My doctor visits include perfect BP and resting heart rate of mid to upper 50's. My point here is..... I love his food selection he has provided in this thread! Yummmmm!

  28. A agree on the ability to eat such foods on rare occasion. I eat McD's and can keep my bf very low, cholesterol in good standing, and bp, however when i say rare occasion i mean tops 4-5 times a year not every other week or something.

  30. well you may want a current cholesterol workup then man.... i notice you neglected to state that in your doctor visits. just because everything looks good on the outside dont assume all is well
