CLEAN VS DIRTY DIET
Just a fun semi informative discussion. So obviously super clean is things like chicken breast and broccoli and super dirty is Mcdonalds drive thru. But what about the in between? What exactly does everyone consider clean and dirty foods and what does everyone like to eat that borders the line. Does it change for you when on cycle?

whilst I get the question and agree that clean and dirty are really common descriptions used I don’t think they are helpful.
Personally I look at two things
- macro breakdown
It’s the second one that’s probably less commonly considered - for me it’s all about bang for my buck (or calorie).
I look at what else I’m getting in terms of micronutrients and how satisfied I’ll be after eating it (I like to eat a lot of food).
Taking the above into account no food is clean or dirty - it either fits my purpose or it doesn’t......that’s the same cutting or bulking.
To try and answer your question a little bit (cause I just realised the above doesn’t at all) foods like dark chocolate, fruit, white potato, fatty meats, peanut butter, cheese etc are my middle ground. All have benefits but not all are easy to fit into my calorie target each day (especially on a cut)

See i work outside for a living, and now that temps are getting hotter i find it hard to have time and even stomach the necessary macros for my goal.
In order to get above 4k calories with chicken rice and broccoli, means i have to eat non stop and sometimes its impossible. So I've added two protein shakes a day to take off 1400 cals. Still km having trouble too.
Gaining muscle is hard enough as it is, but doing so in the summer for me is even harder.
But as soon as I eat "dirty" it seems like the only thing to grow on me is my waist, maybe I have body dysmorphia

When eating clean (cleaner than normal) i eat eggs, sausage, bacon, potatos, lean meats, veggies of all sorts, brown rice. I dont ever get really strict with my diet, nor do i track macros considering its never been necessary for me reach my goals. Im not gonna be a food nazi and make myself miserable for vanity. If i was gonna compete in something then yeah ill be more strict. When i want to eat freely, i like french toast, waffles, giant juicy burgers with fries, and my all-time favorite ice cream. Most often root beer floats

Dirty is anything that I drop on the floor or need to wash prior to eating. Clean is everything else.

Maybe it's time to quit fighting Mother Nature. I'm starting to wonder if it's just too hard to gain weight in the summertime.

For what it's worth Jaimie Lewis did a bit on some traditional stews that are immensely nutrient rich as well as tastey which might be an avenue worth exploring..

Dude, start with half a pound of overnight oats with berries, plenty of maple syrup and milk. That will sort you out.
