Again, all I’m saying is that I cannot believe that an off-season diet for an elite bodybuilder is going to revolve around rubbish food.[/quote]
And after doing so, tell me how you would personally go about getting in the 5-, 6-, even 7000 calories a day that some of these guys need to keep adding mass in the off-season.

Let’s go into detail about “rubbish”. One quarter pounder has 510cals, 29g Protein, 43 Carbs, and 25g Fat. He eats two of those which is how bad exactly? For someone his size who is possibly trying to get down in excess of 6-7,000cals a day, you are saying he should avoid that ratio because…why?
The point being made to you is your body will not reject the nearly 60gr of protein and the 1,020cals from two quarter pounders and cause them to NOT go to muscle mass. It will use that food just like if he had cooked the stuff himself in his kitchen with the same ratio. What I am trying to get you to do is look a little beyond “junk food” and start thinking of what “food” really is without the stereotypes.
The doughnuts? Garbage. I won’t even go there. But even they have calories and for someone gaining with a very fast metabolism and above average genetics, that is often much more important than all else.[/quote]
I’m glad you have the patience to explain shit like this to people. I don’t.
The only thing I can really say about what’s ‘bad’ about the fast food is the quality of the protein. The meat products used in fast food are of the lowest quality: connective tissue, scrap organ meats, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, etc… There’s nmo prime rib or sirloin or ‘meat’ as most people think of ‘meat’ in those burgers. We all need quality protein to build muscle, quality protein that’s rich in essential amino acids.[/quote]
Quality of protein…are you serious? Meat is meat. McDonald’s uses 100% beef in all of their patties. The FDA lets a lot of shit slide, but there is no way they would let them advertise that if it were completely false.
And therein lies the problem with this “industry” (if you can call it that). People believe that these guys actually eat the bullshit chicken, rice, and veggies meals that all of the magazines print, and when something like this comes along, they flip out, claiming there’s no way it could be true.
