Same food as cutting only more?
That's how I understand it..
Tons of protein, veggies, good fats, etc.
Mac N Cheez isn't considered junk?
I guess if one was to be bulking, Mac N Cheez would be great, isn't it like 3000 cal's per box?
I don't know if I see that being clean though..
Screw Mac N Cheese.
screw clean bulking, i'm strict as hell when cutting so might as well enjoy myself a little when i'm trying to put on weight. Mac and cheese is great, 1 box + 1lb lean ground beef is a great bulking meal.
See, I hate cutting. I don't see why I should put on extra fat when I will have to cut all that off again. I'd rather do minimal fat gain.
my personal opinion on this is that genetics + amount over maintenance + overall balance of macros (meaning you get your protein + efa's) makes a much bigger difference in how much fat you put on during a bulk than if the foods are "clean".
i think the biggest difference is that for most people, it's pretty hard to eat too far over maintenance with all clean food, and pretty easy to do when you're bulking dirty.
It all depends on whether or not your predisposed to gaining fat. If you're one of those people who have trouble putting on pounds and are skinny as hell, a dirty bulk will work great for you.
If you've been fat for as long as you remember and just finished cutting, i'd do a clean bulk to ensure you don't get too fat from bulking.
It's all back to the whole is a calorie a calorie thing? Well ya, it is, but it depends on your macronutrient ratios as people have said before. But i don't think thats the only thing, if you're drinking soda or juice that will induce a high insulin spike, and you've got lots of fat around from say a cheeseburger you just ate, a lot of that fat is going to get stored.Depending on your genetics and your energy levels for the day will depend on whether that stored fat gets released again as energy, or stays in your gut.
don't eat that storebought mac and cheese shit you tardfucks.
Get some good penne and some american/cheddar cheese slices...
cook the pasta, let it cool down (or run cool water over it to speed that up), throw it in a bowl (or back into pot if you'd rather clean out a pot than a bowl), throw in some american cheese slices, cut up some cheddar and throw that in there, milk, a little olive oil, and mozzarella if you want.
Homemade mac and cheese > * and it probably has more cals... only differences is it tastes better and can be made with quality whole grain pasta. Also I'd be willing to bed the cheese has more protein and calcium than the powdered shit.
that kraft shit is nasty.
tryin to be like timb with the whoppers
Word.. This is how I understood it..
