chicken nuggets, patties etc...
How does everyone feel about packaged chicken nuggets, patties etc... Been buying alot of them cuz they are quick and simple. Been buying the Tyson brand stuff? anybody have thoughts on this? is it a decent choice, im assuming it isnt as good as actual chicken breast etc but this is a heck of a lot more convenient

i was thinking about the same thing and decided not to buy it i dont know why.. and im doing a 1 month bulking plan so buying a few packages of the chicken patties with whole wheat buns, mustard, lettuce all the good stuff might not be that bad actually.

yeah it is nice since it only takes 20 minutes to cook faster if you use a microwave, but im using a pizzaz (greatest thing ever)

I've always went for boneless skinless bags of chicken, 6 bucks for 5lbs. Takes as long to cook and has more flavor then the breaded chicken, not to mention its got less carbs, and no preservatives. My fav is to take cut the breast up in peices fry it, and then make a mongolian sauce, has some sodium but the chicken lasts all day. IMO anyway.
I'm a hugh fan of the nuwave and flavor wave ovens as well, cuts cooking in half and really helps reduce fats.

At Dollar General, they have these 5oz cans of white meat chunk chicken, 175 cals. 25g protein, 7.5g fat and like 1-2 carbs for a buck. They taste great alone or mixed with a bit of spicy mustard or even hot sauce. Can't beat that for a buck, will sometimes pack 2 and some cottage cheese and 2 slices of rye. 70 of protein, 425 cals. Is yummy **** Nom NOM!

Not to mention im living in fargo, ND right now, our outside temperature is below, -10 lol. I wouldnt say that I am bulking but I am in a gaining phase, at 230 currently would like to be 245.

chicken nuggets and patties are absolute crap. They basically grind up the chicken, bone, beak, eyes and all into a pink paste and make your nuggets and patties out of it.

Total waste of time. They are all fat. Id rather real chicken, tuna, or a quart of whole milk. There are plenty of better choices of things to eat then that absolute crap.

If you are in a bulking phase, then that stuff is fine^ you must realise that in that breading and processed chicken is alot more fat and some carbs than you get in straight chicken breast, or any other lean meat for that matter. I would say dont eat it everyday, unless you have a choice. If recomp or cutting, I wouldnt eat the nuggets, a pattie would be okay but obviously no where near the top choice. read the nutritional labels they do have a purpose. When bulking, a true bulk I repeat, then your just trying to gain mass. fat, water, muscle, whatever, your trying to gain. you will get stronger if you gain weight, and get enough protein and other essentials, and work your balls off in the gym. Ive done it, thousands upon thousands of lifters have done it, and its proven that fats are NEEDED to gain wait (no way, right?!) so, getting a little fat is A okay when gaining. Chicken patties are good to go, especially if its just one part of one of your daily meals.

LOL, why a quart of whole milk, but you just complained about chicken having too much fat ? anyways your gettin alot more sugar from milk, which if your on a cut may not be what you wantttt

Why are more and more people severly mistaken when it comes to what bulking really is?

I didnt say it was the best choice, and you obviously didnt read if you think thats what I said. but bulking is not the gain of solely muscle, thats recomp, and its obviously not cutting. bulking is putting on weight. of course your want most of it to be muscle, but eating some fat is needed. ever hear of EFAs? fats. you need fat to make horomones in the body, for energy, to store vitamins, and a boatload of other things. eating a 0 fat diet during a bulk is pointless. I wasnt knocking you or anything, just saying its not as bad as you say.
Lol, and as to sitting on the couch eating chicken nuggets, thats one of my favorites

I said its bad for cutting, nothing about bulking. and you didnt discuss its use in bulking either. I was simply comparing your knocking of chicken for its fat to your suggestion of whole milk, which contains just as much, if not more fats ( and saturated fats at that).
sugar is a carb, people on low carb med fat high pro diets cut back on milk for that reason, so whole milk is bad in that case. thats all. just like chicken covered in fat and breading is bad for a cut. and whole milk and chicken are good for bulking. We agree, you just wont agree that we agree it seems.

exactly my point, and thats what I said. Its okay to eat some, but not too often and not too much. Its not the worst and certainly not the best. now lets stop pissin about this cause I got better things to do. I can attest that I have eaten alot of chicken patties and those types of food because I have to eat sub par meals once a day. I dont like it but I do it. It doesnt stop me or hurt me at all. telling him its "total junk" is BS. end of story.

French dressing goes great for the last couple minutes of grilling. Monterey chicken and rice!

My personal philosophy on bulking is quality foods and a lot of them. Every once in a while you can splurge, as we all do, but since you posted asking opinions on the said food you got my opinion. If you eat them once in a while cool, but there are better foods to spend your hard earned money on. That is unless you are on welfare then there are better foods to spend my money on!
