OK...I'm interested in gaining mass. I don't care about putting on some fat, however I don't want to clog my arteries and die any time soon.
Anyway, I'm going to keep track of my calories (I'm shooting for 4,000 a day) and protein for a little while to make sure I'm on track, I don't want to obsess about it.
So ... I figure I can knock off a quick 1000 calories and 50 grams of protein my second meal of the day with a wendy's double cheeseburger and a side salad...that ok? or maybe a couple of arby's beef sandwiches.
What about for an after that snack of tossing back like 3 eggs on some wheat bread? I mean like I said, I don't want to die...and my buddy is telling me that if I eat like that I'm going to clog my arteries.
Seriously, I don't possibly see how doing that is worse than what I've been doing for the past two years which basically my daily meals consisted of the following:
morning: twix bar
lunch: some type of fast food, mcdonalds, burger king, wendys, etc.
snack: another twix bar
dinner: something sensible usually because my girlfriend makes good stuff.
So anyway, as you can see I have been eating HORRIBLY in the past...certainly eating wendy's and throwing down eggs and tuna and all that can't be worse???
ProfX (or anyone else), what's your opinion here, like I said, I'm not worried about gaining some fat, I just don't want to die.
And for the record, I'm figureing my breakfast will be healthy like oatmeal and a protein shake, after the gym I'll have a protein shake, and before bed something good also.
