View Full Version : One meal, repeated

OK, so to gain some perspective on how dieting works and how counting calories doesn't have to be really really annoying and sometimes confusing, i am picking a microwaveable meal of lasagne that provides:

500 cals
36g Protein
around 12g of fat
maybe 50g of carbs

(the wrapper is in my bin, i cant be bothered to get up and write down the exact thingys)

So, if my maintenance is 2000 calories and i ate 8 of these lasagnes each day (4000 cals), would i gain some decent weight, and would it be considered as relatively 'clean'.

P.s. provided that i bump the calories accordingly and take into account any other factors that could take up more calories blah blah

You got it. Calories in v. calories out. As a side note, anything that you open from a wrapper, and eat, or microwave and eat, is not very healthy. Just because it's lasagna, doesn't mean it's good for you.

Another side note. Eating 8 of those a day will gwt old after meal 6 on day 1. Variety, dude.
