are baked beans bad for a lean bulk

  1. are baked beans bad for a lean bulk


    i guess lean bulk would be the term used for what im trying to do. ahh well i was jw if baked beans are bad for a lean look bc ive been eating a load of them lately


  2. Try black beans instead. Less sugar, more protein and fiber, and higher in antioxidants. I love baked beans too but it's not like black beans are disgusting by any means. Throw some tabasco and onions and chicken in there, I could eat that almost every day.

  3. same here minus the tabasco, not a sauce fan but sure ill go find a good brand of black beans and switch it up

    They're not bad, but often the sauce they come in is loaded with additional sugar. I'd say keep it to a minimum and don't use it as a main source of protein by any stretch.

  5. i didnt even look at the protein or any nutrition facts on the cans i just love that stuff another thing i have to say i love to eat man some nights i cant sleep ill go fix me a tall glass of milk with 2 or 3 scoops of ice cream break up some oreos in that mug add a little cereal and bammm

    beans are a source of fiber , and can make you feel fuller for longer .Gas is also associated with baked beans.
    there are better sources of protein .

  7. im not eating the beans for a source of protein i just like eating beans, my question was if it would effect my process ?

  8. I'm sure they will help you gain weight...but a larger percentage will probably be fat. I wouldn't worry about it though. If anything just do 1/2 & 1/2. Put a can of baked beans in a bowl with a can of black beans and presto. You have the best of both worlds!!!!

  9. They're medium glycemic. And the GL isn't terrible as long as you watch the portion size. But I would only eat them at specific times of the day.

  10. Black beans are much better. Especially than the ones coated in the sugary syrup. I try to keep my carbs to sweet potatoes, wheat breads, and brown rice while on a lean bulk.

  11. thanks pppls

    not quite sure how baked beans will make you fat as its mainly a source of fiber Fiber ensures everything keeps moving so that you keep regular going to the toilet.

    I never said they would "make" you fat, and yes they do help with the . But since BAKED BEANS have 3-4x the sugar of REGULAR BEANS they will cause more of an insulin spike which can lead to more fat storage. In moderation they aren't bad at all, but 10bathrooms sounds like he's eating a pretty good bit. It's the same reason most of us on here eat wheat bread over white bread. Both have roughly the same amount of carbs, but white causes a larger insulin spike. Hence...we eat wheat bread and black beans

  17. Baked beans are just Navy or Great Northern Beans with 10 lbs of bacon and brown sugar? I vote buy a bag of dried navy beans and put them in everything you eat. 1/2 cup ground turkey 1 cup of navy beans and a tablespoon of BBQ sauce wins the game. (For me anyhow)

  18. yeah i am eating a good bit, maybe 4 to 5 big meals a day, thats without lieng about my meal plan and what not, but im not gaining weight so easily anymore, wich is fine because im about to run a log on a fat burning sup so i need to chill with my food intake
