anyone use "bad" foods but swear it works?
im not talking diets of people like dave tate (during his PL days) but rather Guys Like Jim Wendler who does his 5/3/1 work out and pushes the prowler alot stays lean and eats stuff that actually tastes good. Matt Kroc who finished a bodybuilding comp said the main differnce between bodybuilding and powerlifting was when he PL he was still eating healthy but eat whenever and could go hungry could afford a cheat meal whenever when BB he couldnt do that.
My diet goes like this
meal 1- 2 slices toast, 2 whole eggs 3 egg whites and 16 oz skim milk.
meal 2- protien bar with 20 oz skim milk
Pre workout- Nano Vapor (actually like it, plus it was on clearance)
meal 3- Whey Protien shake and whole grain poptart or garnola bar
meal 4 - Grilled Chicken breast, optional rice,garnola for carbs.
meal 5- Red Barron BBQ chicken pizza and sugar free lemonade
i swear that pizza isnt bad i stayed as lean as i was before still weigh 186, mid section isnt ripped but im powerlifting so im not too concerned because it doesnt look nasty either. If i cut 5-10 pounds id be bodybuilder ripped...
Just weird thinking how something thats junk seems to work? anyone else do anything crazy like that for a meal.

thats kinda what I did. my normal clean meals and if theres a slice of pizza or something laying around my house I eat it. Maybe gained 1-2%bf in like 6months? I do 0 cardio and dont care lol.
I like this idea and will continue to do it.Serious Nutrition Solutions

That is pretty much what I do as well...man, I would go crazy if I ate 100% clean all the time.
I eat very well pretty much all week long...but if my wife happens to make a pizza one night instead of our normal lean meat and veggie, you can bet your sweet arse, I'm going to chow me some pizza, and not insult her by making an alternative dinner. Heck, we make it with whole wheat crust, and low fat toppings anyways...
As far as a "bad" food working...a couple years ago, I was eating either a six inch loaded Subway Sub (only low-fat toppings) or two Whopper Jr's with no mayo for lunch every day...and dropped almost 40 pounds in a little under a year. It worked for me...and I am sure you guys would consider those "bad" foods.

hahah yes i love the responses, i swear the days i tried that low carb cycling bull**** i went crazy... If i dont do the sub i do a footlong from subway but without the fatty toppings...
I feel like id rather over eat maybe get a lil more fat and smash my PRs rather then worry about keeping my 4 pack and starving my self by eating cardboard tasting food like alot of guys at the gym.

Bleh, you guys are not seeing the forest from the trees.
Managing body weight has more to do with how much you eat rather than what you eat.
So.... If YOUR Whopper/pizza diet puts you under YOUR maintenance calorie level then YOU WILL lose weight. Vice versa if you eat above maintenance.
'What you eat' is more important from (1) a micro-nutrition perspective or (2) if you are not tracking your portions. (1) because junk food has a lower food value which can lead to deficiency issues (not enough omega-3's, fiber, etc. (2) because junk foods are denser calorie-wise and can lead to eating too many calories.

Theres no way I could eat clean all the time to eat at my maintenance calories lol. Its all about what works for you and your goals. Everyone is different.

You are also forgetting one MAJOR factor for all the people you listed. STEROIDS. Dave, Louis, Konstantinov all are heavy AAS users, which help a lot with staying lean.

and i will put money on it that tate wont die b4 55... hes about 8% bf and 250-270lbs.

It works. Nothing better than good bulk foods, but it still works. If you don't enjoy yourself when you bulk, I couldn't even imagine cutting then. Typically once every other day I eat something thats not the best. For example, it could be,
Bagel bites for lunch
Pizza for dinner
Going out to eat
Cookies at Night
etc. something every other day, and I have crap metabolism but I utilize nutrient partitioners like anabolic pump to prevent fat gain.. train 5 days a week and do 15 minute HIIT sessions PWO.
