[quote]OREO’s with old fashioned Candy Cane cream

When I saw these on the shelf I was taken back to a story I wrote in Gym Talk - Memoirs of a horny hungry gym rat E-Book. The now famous story of the OREO.

This is my favorite part of the story.

Final Thoughts

Finally, this is NOT a meal or snack.
It is just another way to add some JACK.
Sometimes you have to do things to live your dream.
And yes, this may mean eating some cream.

This may not be the best habit to keep,
but remember when the rest of the world is asleep
you will be the one paying the price
as they wake to another day of chicken and rice.

Sometimes you need to eat healthy to stay clean, but I am
here to say you may have to eat like shit to be a machine.
This may be contrary to fact,
but skinny NOT?let’s get jacked.

If you want to grow up to be like the great King Kong,
then mark my words, you may need some Ding Dongs.
Listen up and make sure to get this right.
It all comes down to calories per bite.

Some of you may be saying, “Dave, you are whacked.”
This is okay because I?m almost JACKED.
I have done what I needed to do.
And yes, I remember the picture at the zoo.

To keep from getting decked,
you should get your blood work checked.
A glass, ice cream, and root beer make a float?
just what is needed for a monster bloat.

Please don’t get trapped.
You need to eat big to get JACKED.
There will be times when you?ll want to quit.
Walk to the mirror and look through your slits.

Your face is bloated and looks like dread,
but your arms are JACKED, you can’t shave your head.
Eating in class once led to after school detention,
but a must this was to gain water retention.

Go to the store and hit the cookie isle.
Load the cart up with a big giant pile.
When you check out, you will pay the toll.
Never mind, this is the way to get ?swole.?

The point I am trying to make
is really as simple as eating cake.
Candy bars, subs, and chips are the right track.
A great daily lunch this is to get JACKED.

It has to do with more than getting big.
For some of us, this may mean being a pig.
You see getting lean is a piece of cake.
It is getting big that makes most shake.

The thought of losing their abs
has them all taking jabs.
They need to get in the kitchen and crank up ?back in black.?
Tear open a box of pop tarts and get JACKED.

They buzz­buzz­buzz l ike mosquitoes
when all they need is a bag of Doritos.
I will say this one more time.
What they say and do is such a crime.

They have their ass tied and bound.
Here is a clue?fudge round.
Diet ing is easy when you set your way.
Adding mass is without a doubt a different day.

They have their way, and I have mine,
but please remember, I walk the line.
They might have been the head of the class,
but they can kiss my JACKED up ass!

Damn…yet when I say I eat a hamburger all hell breaks loose.

Damn…yet when I say I eat a hamburger all hell breaks loose.[/quote]

I love hamburgers, I’d say I eat a minimum of 3 hamburgers a week…and they are not single or small patty burgers. I’m talking 4x4s from In-n-out, baconators from wendy’s, triple whoppers from BK, tobasco bbq 6dollar burgers from Carl’s, etc…

Yeah, I thought about a bulking up but realized if I got about 130 lbs I’d lose my hawt abz.

rolls eyes

hamburgers? you can easily get an extra 90 calories by simply spending 10 cents on some cheese.

for what its worth how is Egg Nog for bulking? i was at school yesterday in the cafe about to pick up a little thing of Hood Milk when next to it i see Egg Nog. Im like, no shit, huh? check out the calorie content: first off its broken up into fourths and theres only 16 grams of protein in the whole thing but the caloric total is 720…problem is theres also 80 grams of sugar total also.

I have some egg nog at my house I downed a bunch of it post-workout along with a full meal. Good stuff, I love egg nog!

Three hamburgers a week? Are they rationing them where you live?

I go to In-N-Out and order a 4x1 (4 patties, 1 cheese) animal style, no pickles…and then I make sure to double that order.

And if I’m feeling carby I will top this with a bowl of ramen noodles and a TBSP of virgin coconut oil.

Hell no man, I was just saying that its the minimum number of hamburgers/cheeseburgers I tend to eat a week on average. Usually I’ll have 2 or maybe 3 during the week if I decide to go out for lunch. Usually just bring my lunch though and then when the weekend comes it depends if I’m in the mood for hamburgers, but usually I get at least a couple more hamburgers in on the weekends.

And I LOVE mexican food! Enchiladas, fajitas, tamales, etc…with the mexican rice and beans - I love it all! Oh shit, Mongolian Beef from pick up stix is amazing too, damn I’m hungry for all kinds of stuff now! lol

Edit: Oh and what is the point in going with the 4x1? I usually always go for the 4x4…unless maybe you just don’t like tasting that much cheese? I’ll admit sometimes the cheese takes away from the taste of the beef because there is so much of it…lol

My only problem with egg nog is that if I drink it and I’m not close to a toilet 20-30 minutes later, then I’m in trouble.

Same here. I usually have three per week on average, only I make them myself. Lately, I’ve been either mixing the ground beef with feta cheese or I’ll take two thin patties and then stuff a bunch of cheddar between the two.

Don’t you know that eating cleanly makes you FEEL better and doesn’t allow you to get all bulky? You can still keep your good physique without looking too big if you keep it <2,500 calories per day. Think about your health, not your physique.

/fake trolljob

But seriously, I really don’t understand people that refuse to eat things that actually HAVE sufficient calories in them. They say they can get calories with other, more healthy ways, but then bitch about not being hungry to eat enough calories for growth. I don’t remember who said it, but “‘Clean’ Bulk = Not Enough Calories.”

Egg Nog with Hershey’s syrup here… Im off my bulk now trying to get to 18% (Yeah Im a old lard ass trying to slowly get down to 12%). Damn I miss food : (

Hey Prof X,

I haven’t started yet. I didn’t intend to until after Thanksgiving. I have already cleaned up my diet though and am working on just trying to maintain my weight that way so that all I have to do is take out one or two items to start dropping weight without starving myself.

"They buzz­buzz­buzz l ike mosquitoes

that’s hilarious. I’m off to buy a bag now :smiley:

Theres is this hole in the wall authentic mexican restaurant down here, that is absolutely amazing. You know they will have good food when its hard to communicate with your waitress. Anyways yesterday I had four large beef toungue tacos and I squeezed lime on top of it. Amazing. By the way beef tongue is incredible, some people have a hard time gettin over the fact that its beef tongue, but if you can your in for a treat.

Actually Bought some the other day. Same 2 for 5 deal :slight_smile:

little caesars, hardees, KFC, brauts, cheddarworst, steaks, eggs, peanut butter, onion rings and steak, hash browns and jimmy dean.

Pretty much how I get in all my calories.

No way In hell I’m gonna add another 100+ punds to my sq/dl this year like I did last year by eating fish and rice cakes.

Baby Faced Bodybuilders reference?

Anyways, why would it be wrong to eat hamburgers and stuff when bulking? As long as you get the calories…
