    Some people can, some people can not.
    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.
    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.

    Lol, honestly I think if it fits your macros is a really bad way to look at things. But I guess it's a good excuse to eat some tasty food ����

    You can eat what you like it all depends how often you eat bad, if you want to look good and feel great, you need to eat good. Just make sure you hit the gym harder after that Friday night takeaway! I have found after working out more I don't want **** food because I am only cheating myself.

    The best time to cheat is around your work outs/lifting days.

    In terms of your short-term physical goals, IIFYM is a great system.

    In terms of long-term internal health and longevity, I think we may be able to reason that pop tarts daily aren't such a great idea, even if you retain a 6-pack in the process.

    To an extent, yes. There are some forgotten elements, though, such as mineral consumption, fiber, etc. that also play into the equation.

    To me, the main thing to take from it is that there is far too much brolore and dogma when it comes to nutrition that if something doesn't fit within the tight box of "proper nutrition," then it's automatically disqualified. For example, I get many, many odd looks when I say that oatmeal is a bad idea because it is nearly universally accepted as a staple for BB'ing.

    I know that I keep picking your brain, but why do you think oatmeal is a bad idea??
