    Pop Tarts?! Lol

    Stick with clean foods, alot of protein... cook a bunch of chicken breasts, make sure to get your greens hearts of romaine lettuce, broccoli, clean carbs such as oatmeal

    Pop Tarts definitely not a clean source of food ha... lots of sugar

    Keep it up bro! I personally dont find whole eggs to be detrimental unless you are SERIOUSLY downing cartons at a time or cutting hardcore

    I agree. Most studies say that eggs aren't bad anymore and actually beneficial. I eat 2-3 whole eggs every day or EOD at the least.

    Stick to lean foods, the chicken, tuna and turkey and work some good carbs in there. Eat lots.
