Bagels??

  1. Question Bagels??


    im trying to bulk up some right now and someone told me bagels are good things to eat as a snack in between meals. ive done some research on this and a bagel with cream cheese has about 300 calories. do you think eating a bagel with cream cheese in between breakfast and lunch and also in between lunch an dinner and possibly even before bed because bagels digest slow, be a good idea or not?


  2. Yes, I eat them as snacks when I'm bulking. They are good as hell too.

  3. The so called 'everything' bagel with some crunchy PB in the middle. Crazy awesome.

    yeah man i love them i eat a few of them a day i just wasnt sure if they were good calories or not. thanks!

  5. Theyre fine. I like jelly on one pre workout with a banana & whey shake.

  6. Are you talking about bagels from the store (Publix etc) or bagels from a shop like Einsteins? big difference there, store bagels suck in taste compared to bagel shops. Sometimes I'll get a big bag of dunkin donuts bagels

  7. bagels are perfect for bulking.

  8. Whole wheat bagels are a staple for me. If you look around, you can find some with up to 13g of protein too, so you're covering all angles. I have about three a day and I'm not even bulking.

  9. Bagels with cream cheese, cheese, peanut butter, bacon, it's all good!

    Yeah, I wonder if I can change my name to Mr. Bacon or something?

  12. The two best bagels for bulking are Brueggers (shop) and Thomas (from stores). They are whole grain bagels

  13. peanut butter bagels are a staple and bacon just makes life better.

  14. thanks for all the input guys i appreciate it. i dont know what kind of bagels they are im in the military in afghan and they have bagels and cream at the chow halls and its all free so i usually grab 4 or five of them in a box every morning and eat them throughout the day.

  15. great way to pack on some quality fat

  16. without getting too much into detail consider a GI of 70+ and a huge glycemic load. i actually just stumbled onto this article:

    pretty good summary

    reading that article might have been the biggest waste of time ive ever spent. it pretty much says eating candy is better than eating whole grains. your an idiot. get a little bigger and stronger and i might listen to you.

    In reference to candy it says..

    Grains cause a spike in insulin. So man’s first processed food is just that—an insulin spiker. OK, it isn’t as bad as a candy bar or a glass of soda
    Says it isn't as bad as candy, meaning candy is worse, but it really isnt any better.

    Considering the GI of a bowl of oatmeal isn't that much different than a snickers bar for breakfast any both contain no nutrients

    I would ask why are you eating oatmeal then? Why not some eggs and fruit?

    And the ad hominem attack helped your point how? For all you know, Anton has packed on 40lbs of lean mass since he started, we all gotta start somewhere, not all of us are natural big boys. Ok, so you disagree, that is your right, no need to be insulting about it.

    lol i dont bodybuild and instead choke people out for a hobby (bjj) so being bigger does nothing for me. let me know if you can get to a single digit bodyfat and maybe ill listen to you. considering you eat bagels all day you probably have no more than 10-15 lbs of LBM than me, the rest is fat.
