I ate fast food for my past 5 meals. One day last week I ate at DD for Breakfast, BK for lunch, MCD for second lunch, checkers for dinner, and Wendys for a snack . LOL! I eat like this all the time. I eat healthy the weight seems to come off very quickly though. I had a few days where I took in over 15,000 calories. When it gets to that point though I get a little sick.

I seem to get larger. I eat fast food every day. Most of my food is fast food. I'm not talking salad either. Burgers, burgers, chicken and fries, more burgers, pizza, more chicken and fries, soda, coffee, ice cream, add in some bacon strips, burger cheese, and more bacon strips. Just doesn't seem to cause me to gain much fat, though I am putting on some fluff, its mostly due to being inconsistent with my workouts and not alot of fluff when you add in how much muscle I've put on- which I'm pretty sure would've been there even if I ate clean. I'm at about 15%bf right now. Last year I was at 182 10% bf. Thats not really that bad with how much crap I eat. If I were to do HIT I'm pretty sure eating junk food wouldn't affect me at all. Fast food is my Diet, I know its not healthy, but I also don't think its as bad as alot of people make it out to be. I do think all of the sugar I take in is bad though.

This should have its own thread. Im sure anyone who watches the show has to wonder how the hell do they look like that with their lifestyle ?!?! I'm not overweight by any means but if I just as much look at a bag of chips it just adds to the battle of the belly buldge !! I hate it!Originally Posted by BB12

everyone knows "a guy" who has an insane metab. or just is genetically blessed to be able to basically "cheat" his way to the top. Just understand it's all relevant. Do you want to have a heart attack at 35? Have diabetes at 40? Heart surgery at 50? His body may appear "fit" but trust me you open him up and his blood work won't match his looks. Do it the right way if you want to be around for your kids to see you working out. It's about health not about "looks"

I've been eating a lot of junk lately

The concept you guys are talking about really isn't unheard of or bizarre...the idea of "if it fits your macros" is popular on a lot of nutrition forums. In the long-term I think it tends to be a bit of a crutch because the **** in most processed foods/fast foods (**** that doesn't even have caloric impact, mind you) honestly cannot be good for you (McDonalds just released that announcement that "pink slime" is officially no longer in their products).
When I'm cutting, I keep my diet very "clean" in the sense that all of my food sources are meticulously documented, weighed, and usually prepared by me, because I want to be in control of every calorie that goes into my body.
Buuutttt whenever I'm bulking, I definitely follow the "if it fits your macros" type of diet. I haven't eaten fast food in probably 5 years, everything I eat is bought from a grocery store, but not everything is considered "great" for you. For instance, when I'm bulking my main focus is on large amounts of carbohydrates because I usually gain best off of those. What are my favorite sources? Kids breakfast cereal (Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Reese's Puffs are favorites) and low-fat ice cream (Edy's Slow-Churned Variety...mouthgasm)

Boy, I wish.
I have to weight my food, count everything and work my ass off just to not put on lbs of fat.
Thanks genetics and a semi-obese childhood.

That sucksOriginally Posted by bla55

I eat around 3600 calories when BULKING, and I'm 225.
Anytime I have vacations, say, for a week or two, and I go out of my eating habits by eating out - even when I try to eat "healthy" - at the end of two weeks I more often than not put on about 4 - 8lbs.
SUCKS. Big time. The only "upside" is that bulks are a cake. I grow like crazy and pack on muscle at an insane rate. Problem with that is, I also often pack a whole, whole lot more of fat than I would like.
But hey, that's life, everyone has to fight their personal battle!

I feel your pain!! I was a SKINNY kid, but around late elementary/early middle school I got FAT, around 210 at about 5'8? .. It still haunts me, I gain muscle pretty easily, so I wonder what I would've been like without these extra fat cells... if I could gain muscle this easy without having to diet so much I could be really ****ing big.... I've thought about getting some lipo done to permanently remove some of these fat cells, but I don't know if I will or not... sure would be good to bulk longer and cut less...
05-05-2012, 11:10 PM
I can add strength in caloric deficit, which is good because if I wander into caloric surplus...BOOM. I have to keep a serious handle on my carb macro count; I rarely go over 125g on a non-refeed training day, and for me they have to be clean carb sources.
Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

From a health standpoint it is not wise. From body comp, you'll hear 50/50 debate.

I'm not the leanest around, that's not my goal as of yet (to be super shredded), I'm just trying to drop body fat levels. I try and keep a solid diet, not to over do carbs, make sure I get enough protein... But when it's time to enjoy life I don't hold back.... I just don't over do it.Originally Posted by vidapreta
Or if I know a nice dinner is coming up @ night that may involve some brews, fries, what ever I'll watch what I eat during the day.
